True Detective (9 p.m. Sunday, HBO): Two Louisiana cops (Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey) investigate the ritualistic murder of a hooker in this dark new series. The show’s creator, Nic Pizzlolatto, also worked on AMC’s grim The Killing, which gives you an idea of the flavor.

House of Lies (10 p.m. Sunday, Showtime): As the third season gets under way, partners in corporate thievery Don Cheadle and Kristen Bell have split up and become competitors. Imagine the gangfight in West Side Story using corporate bonds instead of switchblades and you’re on the right track.

Chozen (10:30 Monday, FX): A gay white rapper just out of prison may not seem like the perfect foil for an adult cartoon. But FX is the network that made a sitcom about eating disorders called Starved in which most of the jokes were about puking or enemas. So, we’ll see.
