Beginning with "Oz" in 1997, HBO has created an award-winning tour-de-force of dramatic programming, and in January, it looks like the channel may have another hit on its hands.
On Monday, the network released two teaser trailers that showcase the lead characters of the upcoming crime drama series "True Detective."
American actors Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey play Martin Hart and Rust Cohle, respectively, two detectives who hunt a serial killer across Louisiana for 17 years.
The show will use multiple timelines to tell the tale.
The first season premieres on Jan. 12, 2014 and will consist of eight episodes.
