‘True Detective’ Trailer Starring Mahershala Ali
Mahershala Ali is starring in the third season of HBO’s “True Detective”. The trailer was released over the weekend. The series is an anthology crime drama television series created and written by Nic Pizzolatto. Each season of the series is structured as a disparate, self-contained narrative, employing new cast ensembles and following various sets of characters and settings.
The first season, starred Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson, Michelle Monaghan, Michael Potts, and Tory Kittles, and took place in Louisiana and followed a pair of Louisiana State Police homicide detectives, and their pursuit of a serial killer over a 17-year period. The second season, starred Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Taylor Kitsch, Kelly Reilly, and Vince Vaughn, and was set in California, and focused on three detectives from three cooperating police departments and a criminal-turned-businessman as they investigate a series of crimes they believe are linked to the murder of a corrupt politician.
This year, Ali made history, becoming the first Muslim actor to win an Academy Award, winning for his role in “Moonlight.” Most recently, he co-starred in the hit Netflix shows Luke Cage and House of Cards.
