Four-time Emmy nominee Connie Britton, most recently seen on Fox’s “9-1-1” and best known for her roles on “Nashville” and “Friday Night Lights,” will lead the cast of the new scripted anthology series “Dirty John,” in the works at Bravo Media.
The series comes from executive producer Ryan Murphy and Universal Cable Productions, in association with Los Angeles Times Studios and Atlas Entertainment. The project is based on the articles and breakout true crime podcast of the same name from Los Angeles Times reporter Christopher Goffard.
“The series tells the true story of how a romance with the charismatic John Meehan spiraled into secrets, denial and manipulation,” Bravo Media says in an announcement released today. “Britton will lead as Debra Newell, a successful interior designer and single mom from Orange County who falls in love with John Meehan.”
Britton will also be an executive producer on the show.
