In 2012, Louisiana State Police Detectives Rust Cohle and Martin Hart are brought in to revisit a homicide case they worked in 1995. As the inquiry unfolds in present day through separate interrogations, the two former detectives narrate the story of their investigation, reopening unhealed wounds, and drawing into question their supposed solving of a bizarre ritualistic murder in 1995. The timelines braid and converge in 2012 as each man is pulled back into a world they believed they'd left behind. In learning about each other and their killer, it becomes clear that darkness lives on both sides of the law.

I’m currently reading Nic’s first draft for True Detective season 1 episode 1. He does something quite odd that I’ve never seen done before in a screenplay and I thought you guys could help me out. Nic will usually put a (- - ) or a (-) at the end of each paragraph. I’m not quite sure what it means. 3 comments

If you are not already listening, check out the Serial podcast. It's a true murder story from 1999 retold in the same way True Detective was. Start with episode 1 and expect to binge. 6 comments
