Milch, who has written Hill Street Blues, NYPD Blue and the Deadwood TV series, will be credited as the co-writer for season 3's 'The Hour and the Day', reports IndieWire. He also helped Pizzolatto "craft a good chunk of the season."

"He turned me on to writing out loud, which I’d never done before, and I ended up writing most of the second half of the season out loud, which was a much more spiritually healthy thing to do than be alone in a room with a blank page. I knew he was going to have to go back and do Deadwood and get that on its feet again, but I was just glad we had that time together. It’s something I’m going to remember and take with me for the rest of my life," said Pizzolatto.

HBO green-lit the film adaptation of the Golden Globe and Emmy winning Western series Deadwood in July. Directed by Daniel Minahen, it will premiere in 2019.

The third season of the crime anthology series tells the story of a macabre crime in the heart of the Ozarks, and a mystery that deepens over decades and plays out in three separate time periods. It will feature Oscar winner Mahershala Ali as Wayne Hays, a state police detective from Northwest Arkansas. True Detective season 3 will premiere on 13 January, 2019.
