The 8-part series follows 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 idea for the first 8-episodes is to resolve the immediate mystery, with future seasons using the same structure, but with new characters and storylines.
Cary Fukunaga is directing the series with Anonymous' Richard Brown, Steve Golin and Bard Dorros producing.
This project is still in development.
