A new trailer and a fantastic featurette have been released for HBO’s upcoming cop-procedural True Detective. Early word is that this is going be a great dramatic-thriller, with Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson reportedly putting in their all. Make sure you check out the 12-minute featurette, which offers a great look at the making of the show and plenty of new footage. You even find out that the crew employed birds-of-prey on set to deal with unwanted animals. HBO has delivered some fantastic television for adults over the years and this looks like another smack out of the park.
