7 True Detective Filming Locations to Visit

Sitting in a ditch watching Matthew McConaughey film a scene for the HBO series True Detective is not the most glamorous side of the movie industry. Yet with McConaughey’s wardrobe crew on one side of me and his hair and makeup crew on the other, it did make the perfect, albeit gritty, spot to watch the unfolding scene. In fact, everything about True Detective, especially the locations, is gritty. Thank goodness as a country girl from the river parishes, I’m not afraid of a little (a lot) of dirt.
