'True Detective' Blu-ray and DVD Debut June 10th

26 March 2014 4:23 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Starring Academy Award nominee and Emmy Award winner Woody Harrelson (The Hunger Games) and Academy Award winner Matthew McConaughey (Dallas Buyers Club) as two detectives assigned to a grisly and cultish murder case in the Louisiana bayou country, True Detective has become one of the most critically-acclaimed new series of 2014. This "breathtaking" (Time) crime drama, which was the most-watched first season of any HBO original series since the legendary premiere of Six Feet Under in 2001, makes its home entertainment debut on Blu-ray with Digital HD ($79.98), DVD ($59.99) and Digital Download on June 10, 2014, just in time for Father's Day. Both sets of True Detective include the full eight-episode season, along with extensive bonus materials including exclusive interviews with Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, a discussion between series creator Nic Pizzolatto and Academy Award-winning composer T-Bone Burnett about the development of the show and the pivotal role of the series' music, and never-before-seen footage from the series. »

'True Detective' will submit for Emmy contention as a drama

25 March 2014 5:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If this summer's Emmy races are half as exciting as this spring's jockeying for Emmy category position, we're gonna have a real barnburner on our hands come August. Two weeks ago, Netflix fired the first salvo, electing to submit "Orange Is The New Black" in the comedy category after going as a drama for Golden Globes contention. Personally, I think that was the smart and correct choice and, in a perfect world, "Orange" could fill out the supporting actress field on its own. [That won't happen. But it should.] Then earlier this morning, Showtime unexpectedly announced that after three years as a drama for Emmy purposes, "Shameless" will submit as a comedy this year. I'd always advocated "Shameless" as a comedy in years past and I would put Emmy Rossum in any open field of actress contenders, regardless of category. Still, I'm not quite sure how I feel about the move in this particular season, which »

Challenge Accepted: HBO’s True Detective Will Compete in Drama Series Category at the Emmys

25 March 2014 4:25 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Well this certainly makes things interesting.  HBO’s stellar True Detective is an anthology series, with each season telling a standalone story with different characters and a different cast, but it appears that the network is feeling rather bullish and will be submitting True Detective in the highly competitive Drama Series category at the upcoming Emmy Awards.  Many assumed HBO would be submitting True Detective as a Miniseries, where it would no doubt clean up with awards for the show as a whole, director Cary Fukunaga, writer/creator Nic Pizzolato, and actors Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. However, with this interesting turn of events, True Detective will now square off directly with Breaking Bad’s final season in the fiercely competitive drama series field.  Hit the jump for more. News of HBO’s submission decision for True Detective comes courtesy of THR.  Though the pay cable network has had much »

‘True Detective’ to Submit as Drama Series, Not Miniseries, for Emmys

25 March 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Imagine the soliloquy Rust Cohle could spin about the philosophical reasoning behind Emmy submission strategies.

HBO has thrown down the gantlet, making the decision to enter “True Detective” into the Primetime Emmy drama series categories rather than the miniseries field. It’s a statement that HBO feels it has more than a fighting chance with the Matthew McConaughey-Woody Harrelson starrer in the top series category — even against such heatseekers as “Breaking Bad,” “Mad Men,” “Homeland” and its own “Game of Thrones” and “Boardwalk Empire” — as well as the lead drama actor race.

True Detective” likely would have had an easy trot to victory at the Emmycast in August in the miniseries category. The series fits the objective definition of a miniseries in that it is designed to be reinvented with an entirely new cast, setting and premise each year.

But the eight-episode drama caught fire for HBO in its January-February run, »

True Detective - Episode 5 Review

25 March 2014 9:59 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Matt Smith reviews the fifth episode of True Detective....

True Detective, in an ironic turn considering the nature of its two protagonists’ jobs, is the first series where I’ve had to avoid spoilers. What really did tear the two detectives apart? What is the truth, and what are the lies amongst the testimony from each of them.

With characters all different shades of grey, with moral boundaries crossed while still perhaps in some form of right instead of wrong, it’s very easy to classify True Detective as a neo-noir played out on our TV screens. Characters stuck in situations of their own making, all on a headlong course for their inevitable fate. While many genres have that (the romcom being the most obvious opposite), True Detective is so bleak you can’t help but feel sorry for the characters at the same time you consider how loathsome they truly are. »

True Detective: how we made the most talked-about TV show of the year

The silent spaces and spooky folk crafts of backwoods Louisiana get as much screen time as Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey in director Cary Fukunaga's murder mystery

More: Fukunaga on filming that tracking shot

If you were looking to name the most talked-about programme on TV right now, you wouldn't have to be an obsessive policeman with a deductive intuition to alight on True Detective. Praise has been lavished on Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey in their roles as Louisiana state detectives Marty Hart and Rust Cohle. The mystery, in which the pair investigate a ritual murder in the bleak wilds of the bayou, has prompted much speculation and theorising. Some of us have even admired the folk crafts (wherever the detectives go they stumble over piles of spooky wooden icons). What binds the serial together, though, and elevates True Detective into truly compelling television is its eerie tone and complex structure. »

Brad Pitt Wanted For True Detective Season 2?

21 March 2014 1:33 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With season one of True Detective now in the books, all focus turns towards HBO and who they will find to replace the crew that made the series’ first outing so memorable. In case you didn’t know, stars Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey will not be returning, and neither will director Cary Fukunaga. We haven’t heard anything official yet on who might be taking over for those three aforementioned talents, but this week an interesting, albeit probably false, rumor has surfaced.

Hollywood Life is reporting that Brad Pitt’s name has come up “many times” and that HBO would be “thrilled to have him on board.” Apparently, it’s just a matter of whether or not the actor can clear room in his schedule. If he can though, then he’ll likely be taking one of the lead roles.

How True Detective’s Cinematographer Got These 9 Shots

19 March 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

These days, most post-tv episode reactions lean toward “I can't believe that happened!” rather than “How beautiful was that wide shot!” With True Detective, showrunner Nic Pizzolatto wanted both. So he got Sin Nombre and Jane Eyre director Cary Joji Fukunaga, and also tapped Adam Arkapaw, the Australian cinematographer behind the critically acclaimed crime dramas Animal Kingdom and The Snowtown Murders. It helped that Arkapaw was coming off Jane Campion's Top of the Lake, another transcendent small-screen experience. Shooting True Detective entirely on Kodak film (save for episode four's momentous six-minute-long shot that required digital just to pull off the run time), Fukunaga and Arkapaw unraveled a very cinematic television saga. Behind every hair-brained Yellow King theory, there was consideration for light, color, composition, texture, and camera movement.Just this week, Fukunaga told the Guardian, "Before I even started working on True Detective, I made a point of telling »
