Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey reteam in new series

This is news that will make “True Detective” fans damn nostalgic. Indeed, 10 years after having collaborated in season 1 of the detective anthology, the two actors Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey will put the cover back in a series … much less dark.

Woody Harrelson/Matthew McConaughey: sacred duo

Accustomed to launching cult series for two decades, the HBO channel broadcast in 2013 True Detective. The show has a particularity: each season focuses on a criminal investigation, each time with new detectives (and therefore, new actors). Thus, for the first season, the series hires neither more nor less than two big names in cinema: Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey.

At that time, the announcement is enormous since, unlike today, it is rare for stars of the big screen to work in series. The first season therefore sees the actor duo working brilliantly together, in a season just as exceptional. Thus, we will long remember the macabre staging of the different episodes as well as the brilliant realization of Cary Fukunaga (which will be revealed thanks to this series)

However, the great success of this season 1 of True Detective will be largely due to the talents of its actors. Thus, thanks to this series, Matthew McConaughey will continue on his career resurrection started since the beginning of the 2010s. He also won the Emmy Award for Best Actor for his performance.

From tears to laughter

The two actors (who are also friends in life) will team up again for a series as we learn variety. Indeed, this project which does not yet have a title and which is produced by the streaming service Apple TV+ will, this time, be comical. Thus, the two actors will play more or less their own roles but in a fictional plot since their respective families will have to live together on the ranch of Matthew McConaughey. The series will have showrunner David West Read (The Big Door Prize).

This isn’t the first time Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey have come together in a comedy. Indeed, long before True Detectivethe two men had worked together on Live on EdTV And Welcome to Hollywood.
