> Tube Talk's 2012-13 season US TV scorecard: What's axed? What's renewed?

The show has been picked up 'straight to series', which means that it has been ordered without having to go through the pilot process. The broadcaster is said to be in final negotiations, with Cary Fukunaga (Jane Eyre, Sin Nombre) attached to direct.

The Killing's Nic Pizzolatto wrote the scripts pitched to the network.

True Detective stars McConaughey as Rust Cohle and Hunger Games actor Harrelson as Martin Hart, two detectives on the trail of a killer in Louisiana.

The narrative is said to jump between 1995 - when the murders took place - and the present day.

HBO recently confirmed that both Girls and Veep have been renewed for a second season, with both shows receiving ten-episode orders.
