TV may long have been the ‘unwashed masses’ when it comes to the entertainment industry but there has been a very obvious shift in recent years of big Hollywood names finding their way to the small screen. Very often they land at one of the premium cable channels. Premiering next year is a show on HBO that has quite a bit of star power attached.
Even though Woody Harrelson is no stranger to television, he’s been more of a movie guy in recent decades and Matthew McConaughey hasn’t been on TV at all outside of a few guest spots here and there. So you can imagine that the people behind HBO’s new series, True Detective, are pretty excited about the future of their show. The two men star as Louisiana cops and from the newly released trailer you get the idea that they might not be completely on the up and up.
