Writer / Director Nic Pizzolatto 

In 2011, Nic Pizzolatto  wrote two episodes for the first season of the crime drama television series The Killing.  In 2012, he created an original television series called True Detective, which was sold to HBO and completed shooting in June 2013, with Pizzolatto as executive producer, sole writer, and showrunner. In January 2014 it became the most watched freshman show in the network's history. The show was critically acclaimed and was so popular the finale crashed HBO's streaming service.


Pizzolatto listed several influences on the show's first season: philosophy books such as Thomas Ligotti's The Conspiracy Against the Human Race, Eugene Thacker's In The Dust of This Planet, Ray Brassier's Nihil Unbound, Jim Crawford's Confessions of an Antinatalist, and David Benatar's Better Never to Have Been. Pizzolatto also mentions horror authors Laird Barron, John Langan, Simon Strantzas, and Ligotti.
