Connie Britton to Star in Bravo Anthology Series DIRTY JOHN

Connie Britton Picture
"American Horror Story" and "Nashville" star Connie Britton is set to star in the upcoming anthology drama series "Dirty John". Developed for Bravo, the true crime series' first season is based on a series of articles published by the Los Angeles Times about con man John Meehan, and his relationship with Debra Newell (Britton), a single mother who fell for him after meeting him on an over-50 dating site. Their romance quickly spiraled out of control with shocking consequences for Debra and her children.

The script will be written by "Chance" creator Alexandra Cunningham, whose writing credits also include episodes of "Desperate Housewives", "Bates Motel" and "Aquarius". There is also a docu series in the works about Meehan's case from Oxygen Media. The show's second season will focus on an entirely different story that has yet to be determined.

Britton currently stars in the Fox series "9-1-1" created by Brad Falchuk, Tim Minear and Ryan Murphy. On the big screen she can be seen in the dramedy "The Land of Steady Habits" opposite Ben Mendelsohn, and the drama "Mustang" alongside Matthias Schoenaerts, both due for release sometime this year.
