Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson are on their way to HBO.

The pay channel outbid other networks to claim rights to upcoming series “True Detective” which stars none other than Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, according to Deadline.com.

The channel is so confident in the series that it has ordered the show straight to series, with eight parts of the series in the works.

The duo will play detectives whose paths “cross and converge over the course of a 17-year-long hunt for a serial killer in Louisiana, with current day testimony from each framing flashbacks to the investigation,” according to the reports.

The first season would revolve around one mystery, with future seasons being dedicated to other cases.
