WATCH: Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey in HBO’s ‘True Detective’ (VIDEO)

Series will bow in early 2014

Attempting to capitalize on both thesps’ fall movie buzz, HBO has released the trailer for Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey’s upcoming cop drama “True Detective.”

Fittingly, the network aired the first full-length trailer for the highly-anticipated show about two detectives’ 17-year hunt for a serial killer in Louisiana prior to its season four premiere of its other crime drama, “Boardwalk Empire.”

While Harrelson (” The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”) and McConaughey (“Dallas Buyers Club”) are the selling points for the first season, the idea is to solve the mystery during the first year’s run and then repeat the story-telling structure with different characters.

Series will bow in January.
