Script vs Screen

Ep. 18 - True Detective Sn1

November 17, 2015

We take a look back at the pilot of the powerful HBO series True Detective. The first season starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson was a delightful trip in the true crime genre, featuring stark Louisiana landscapes and a deep and dark look into the occult.

In this episode we discuss some really neat differences from the script such as the shows original location was Arkansas. More significantly near the end we delve into three main topics on True Detective 
1) the role of women in season one, 
2) the accusations of plagiarism by writer Nic Pizzolatto and 
3) hate watching Season 2 and how it may have impacted the franchise and the actors in that series. 

Alright, alright, alright... we hope you enjoy the show!
