After the release of the true crime series “Dirty John”, a Bravo and Netflix co-production, we are now seeing details of the follow on season of the anthology show. Where the first series followed the story of con man John Meehan, the second part will follow a different true crime story. “Dirty John: The Betty Broderick Story” will star Christian Slater (“Mr Robot”) and Amanda Peet (“2012”) to tell the “epic true tale of love gone wrong — a story that spans the 1960s to the ’80s, through the breakdown of a marriage that Oprah deemed one of ‘America’s messiest divorces’ even before it ended in double homicide.” The series will launch in 2020 and will likely arrive on Bravo in America before launching on Netflix everywhere else a few months after.
According to Variety, Peet will star as Betty Broderick, a “perfect Southern California blonde wife and mother married to her handsome college boyfriend Dan (Slater). After years of sacrifice and suffering while supporting Dan through both medical and law school until he exploded into the San Diego legal community as a superstar, Betty is finally enjoying the fruits of their labours. That is, until Dan hires Linda, a bright, beautiful young woman with whom he can happily forget the struggles of his past.”
