The unique drama will debut in January and run an eight-episode opening season that focuses on a pair of law enforcement officials: Matthew McConaughey's Rust Cohle and Woody Harrelson's Martin Hart. The series will chronicle their intersecting lives over the course of a 17-year investigation into a Louisiana serial killer.
Opening in 1985, the show will take fans up through testimony from the detectives in 2012, when the case has been reopened.
