Television: True Detective to be Entered as Drama Series for Emmys

So it was announced today that HBO plans to submit True Detective as a Drama Series rather than Miniseries for the Emmys. This may seem like a small thing, but in the industry it's actually quite telling.

True Detective is a strong show, and I'm glad HBO feels confident enough in it to pit it against the likes of Mad Men and Breaking Bad and all those other big-name dramas that tend to get lauded each year. But something in me says this is a really bad idea anyway. Even Cohle might see fit to remind us, "Pride goeth before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall."

Then again, Cohle isn't really the biblical type.

HBO probably isn't either.
