The series centers on two detectives, Rust Cohle (Matthew McConaughey) and Martin Hart (Woody Harrelson), whose lives collide and entwine during a seventeen-year hunt for a serial killer in Louisiana. The investigation of a bizarre murder in 1995 is framed and interlaced with testimony from the detectives in 2012, when the case has been reopened. The show will be an eight-episode anthology series, written by Nic Pizzolatto and directed by Cary Fukunaga.
Each season is said to star two new detectives and the viewers follow these characters throughout the solving of a crime. Check out the official trailer below:
