True Detective (2014)
So far there is one new upcoming HBO tv series that is getting a lot of attention. Last month HBO already released a trailer, and it looks incredibly promising. We are of course talking about True Detective (2014) with Hollywood actors Matthew Mcconaughey and Woodey Harrelson. It appears to be a very dark show following the lives of two detectives in America, and each season the cast will consist of two new actors. It is airing on Sunday 12 January 2014.
Here it the teaser for the upcoming 2014 HBO series ‘True Detective’.
I believe this is one of the most promising upcoming tv shows of 2014. Looking is an HBO show about homosexuals in the gay-scene of San Francisco. It is being described as a comedy drama. So perhaps it will be somewhat like a tragicomedy. We will see. Looking will premiere at the end of January.
