A trailer has dropped for Dirty John starring Eric Bana and Connie Britton.
The NBCU-produced anthology sees Bana star as “Dirty” John Meehan, a handsome and romantic charmer who sweeps Debra Newell (Connie Britton) off her feet and pulls her into his web of lies.
The series is based on a podcast by LA Times reporter Chris Goffard and dramatises how the romance spiralled into secrets, deception, denial and, ultimately, survival. Season two will feature an entirely new stand-alone story.
It is written by Alexandra Cunningham (Chance, Desperate Housewives), who is co-executive producer. Jeffrey Reiner (The Affair, Friday Night Lights) is executive produce and directs the pilot episode.
It will screen in Australia through Netflix.
