Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey Team Up with Cary Fukunaga for HBO Cop Show


HBO has gone and landed itself another TV-production dream team: Less than a month after announcing that Ira Glass, Owen Wilson, and Veronica Mars/Party Down creator Rob Thomas were at work on a This American Life-inspired drama, the network has signed another promising trio. Jane Eyre and Sin Nombre filmmaker Cary Fukunaga will direct Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey in True Detective, an eight-episode series about two cops’ 17-year search for a Louisiana serial killer that HBO is taking straight to series. Although this particular story arc will conclude at the end of the first season — phew — it isn’t clear yet whether further adventures of Harrelson and McConaughey’s characters could follow.
