Deadline’s reporting Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson are collaborating with director Cary Fukunaga (Jane Eyre) on an 8 episode cop drama called True Detective. The series doesn’t have a network to call home yet, but with buddies Harrelson and McConaughey on board it’s likely to get picked up quickly.
 
McConaughey and Harrelson starred in Ron Howard’s 1999 comedy, Edtv, and reunited in 2008 for the independent surfer film, Surfer, Dude.
 
Nic Pizzolatto (The Killing) wrote True Detective which, according to Deadline, “centers on two detectives, Rust Cohle (McConaughey) and Martin Hart (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.”
 
Deadline also reports that the idea will be to solve the mystery in one 8 episode season, with season #2 – if there is one – focusing on a different mystery.
