"True Detective" (TV show) is a drama series on HBO that stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson as Louisiana detectives Rust Cohle and Martin Hart, whose lives collide and entwine during a 17-year hunt for a killer, ranging from the original investigation of a bizarre murder in 1995 to the reopening of the case in 2012.

As the inquiry unfolds in present day through separate interrogations, the two former detectives narrate the story of their investigation, reopening unhealed wounds, and drawing into question their supposed solving of a bizarre ritualistic murder in 1995. The timelines braid and converge in 2012 as each man is pulled back into a world they believed they'd left behind. In learning about each other and their killer, it becomes clear that darkness lives on both sides of the law.

Michelle Monaghan ("Mission: Impossible III") also stars as Hart's wife, Maggie, who struggles to keep her family together as the men in her life become locked in a cycle of violence and obsession. The cast also includes Kevin Dunn ("Veep") as Major Quesada, the supervising officer in 1995; Tory Kittles ("Sons of Anarchy") and Michael Potts ("The Wire") as Detectives Papania and Gilbough, the investigators now probing Hart and Cohle for answers.

"True Detective" is written and created by Nic Pizzolatto ("The Killing") and directed by Cary Fukunaga ("Sin Nombre," "Jane Eyre"), who are executive producers along with Steve Golin and Scott Stephens.
