Although we still don’t know if a fourth season is in the cards for True Detective, in the meantime HBO is offering up a new TV series that might help hold fans of that show over. The Outsider is based on a Stephen King novel and it revolves around the mysterious forces surrounding the murder of an 11-year-old boy in Georgia. Ben Mendelsohn plays a police detective and lead investigator who is also mourning the death of his own son, while Cynthia Erivo is a private investigator who uses unorthodox methods and Jason Bateman is the prime suspect. Bateman will direct a couple of episodes himself, coming off his Emmy win for directing Ozark, while Richard Price (The Night Of) wrote the series. The Outsider premieres on HBO on Jan. 12th; check out the first trailer below and let us know what you think.
