Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey co-star as detectives in an eight-episode murder mystery drama for HBO...

Premiering on HBO in January 2014 is True Detective, an eight-part complete series based not on the long-running pulp crime magazine of the same name, but an original screenplay from US novelist Nic Pizzolatto.

The story of two detectives (played by Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey) investigating an extraordinary murder, True Detective uses multiple perspectives and timelines to tell its grim tale. The 1995 murder investigation is spliced with testimonies from the two detective characters being interviewed in 2012.

With Harrelson and McConaughey as its leads, and Jane Eyre and Sin Nombre's Cary Fukunaga directing, we'd say this is more than worth a punt. Take a look at the first trailer below:
