The second series of 'True Detective' has a UK to-air date. The eight-part crime drama will start on Sky Atlantic on June 22nd at 2am – the same time as it's shown on HBO in the US. If you don't want to miss out on any sleep, you can wait until the evening broadcast.

This time, the action has moved from Louisiana to California and there's a host of new faces: Vince Vaughan stars as Frank Semyon, Colin Farrell as Ray Velcoro and Rachel McAdams as Ani Bezzerides.

But you can still expect the usual mix of mystery and drama as the first series which starred Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson.

It's written by Nic Pizzolatto, whose previous work includes the US version of 'The Killing', as well as a novel called 'Galveston' and numerous short stories.

The first two episodes are directed by Justin Lin, who is also taking the helm of the forthcoming 'Star Trek' film.

Sky Atlantic will premier a new comedy series called 'The Brink' on the same day.

It stars Jack Black, Tim Robbins and Pablo Schreiber as three Americans on whose shoulders rests the fate of the world after a rogue general takes control of Pakistan and its arsenal of nuclear weapons.

It also features British actors Rob Brydon, Meera Syal and Michelle Gomez.
