On its face, HBO's True Detective looks like a number of other dark and twisted serial killer murder mysteries. But it becomes clear very early on that the show's creator, novelist Nic Pizzolatto, has much more on his mind.
"I'm not interested in creating disgusting monsters or the most bizarre serial killer ever," Pizzolatto tells TVGuide.com. "My primary concern is always the humanism of the characters. Where the show gains its power for an audience, I think, is in things that aren't investigative at all. It's in two men talking to one another in a car. It's in a man coming over to another man's house for dinner and eating with his family. Those are the things that always interest me."

AMC is at a crossroads.
Although the cable network's successes in 2013 are hard to ignore — Breaking Bad ended its landmark run to critical raves and an astounding 400-plus percent growth in total viewers, and The Walking Dead remained TV's top-rated drama with a Season 4 premiere that drew 16 million sets of eyeballs — the network faced its share of setbacks. A resurrected third season of The Killing earned better reviews, but it was canceled (again) after failing to deliver an audience (it's since been revived again by Netflix). Worse, freshman drama Low Winter Sun was utterly rejected by viewers despite being paired with Bad's successful final run.

Bosch, based on the best-selling book series by Michael Connelly, tells the story of a relentless LAPD homicide detective (Titus Welliver) who pursues the killer of a 13-year-old boy. But Bosch is also standing trial in federal court on accusations that he murdered a suspected serial killer in cold blood.

ABC's new series Betrayal is being marketed as a sexy new drama — and it is — but creator David Zabel (ER) insists the show isn't setting out to glorify infidelity.
"There's no way that anyone who watches the series will ever think that we're romanticizing or justifying adultery or infidelity," Zabel, who adapted the show from a Dutch drama, tells TVGuide.com. "We are examining the difficult situation that people in monogamous relationships find themselves in when they meet somebody else and think that might be the person they're meant to be with. ... It's very difficult for these characters."

Question: Love your column and hope you could shed some light on an issue for me. As I understand it, TV shows/actors submit one episode of what they feel is their best work (that season) for Emmy consideration. Is this true? If so, don't you think the criteria should require a greater sample size since one episode, no matter the quality, does not necessarily tell the story of an entire season? —Charles
