            Have you been watching “True Detective” on HBO? Nic Pizzalotto wrote and executed produced the series filmed in north Louisiana. Pizzolatto was born in New Orleans, raised in Lake Charles and attended LSU and the University of Arkansas. He is the author of the novel, “Galveston” (Scribner, 2010) and has had a collection of stories, titled “Between Here and the Yellow Sea,” named by Poets & Writers magazine as a top five fiction debut of 2006.
            “True Detective” stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson in a gripping mystery series surrounding a strange, occult-like murder in Vermilion Parish. Years later the two detectives are interviewed about the case and the series veers back and forth from those two timeframes.
