Netflix Sets August UK Premiere Date For ‘Dirty John: Betty’ (aka Season 2)
Netflix has set an August premiere date for ‘Dirty John: The Betty Broderick Story‘, the 2nd Season of the true-crime anthology series, this time starring Amanda Peet (‘Brockmire’, ‘The Romanoffs’) and Christian Slater (‘Mr. Robot’, ‘Dr. Death’).
‘Dirty John: Betty’ is based on another 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 a double homicide…
Betty Broderick (Peet) was the perfect Southern California blonde wife and mother. Married to her handsome college boyfriend Dan (Slater), Betty charms everyone she meets. 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 (Rachel Keller – ‘Legion’, ‘Fargo’), a bright, beautiful young woman without baggage with whom he can happily forget the struggles of his past. Betty’s attempts to fight back and enraged refusals to accept reality only serve to isolate and destabilize her until she loses her very identity. And Dan’s cold confidence blinds him to the bear he has created, and won’t stop poking… until it’s too late.
Produced by UCP, a division of NBCUniversal Content Studios, Season 2 is written by Alexandra Cunningham, who also executive produces along with Jessica Rhoades (‘Sharp Objects’, ‘Utopia’), season one star Connie Britton, Atlas Entertainment and Los Angeles Times Studios. Netflix co-produces and has first-run rights to the series outside of the U.S.
‘Dirty John: The Betty Broderick Story‘ premieres Friday, 14th August 2020 on Netflix UK.
