Were you surprised?
Variety News Editor Laura Prudom has reported that during today’s Summer Critics Association press tour HBO President Michael Lombardo and CEO Richard Plepler were asked about True Detective but they’re not ready to crack just yet. Lombardo did have this to say:
“I think the people we will cast will be well known names, but that wasn’t our ambition…”
We didn’t exactly need confirmation on that point but it’s nice to have it all the same. Prudom also reported that two scripts have been seen so far and they are “more exciting” than the first season.
When it came to the recent rumors concerning one male lead Lombardo and Plepler were predictably silent. Now that the Emmy nominations are out of the way you can expect to have more news leak out. That’s just how it goes sometimes. Head over to Variety for the full article.
