Amanda Peet, Christian Slater to Star on DIRTY JOHN Season 2

Amanda Peet And Christian Slater To Star In Dirty John Season 2

The second season of the true crime anthology series "Dirty John" is moving forward with Amanda Peet ("Brockmire", "Togetherness") and Christian Slater ("Mr. Robot") in the lead roles. The show will be moving from Bravo to USA Network, and it is co-produced with Netflix.

Titled "Dirty John: The Betty Broderick Story", the new season will be 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 double homicide."

Peet will star as Betty Broderick, the 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 labors. That is, until Dan hires Linda, a bright, beautiful young woman with whom he can happily forget the struggles of his past.

Season 2 is currently in production in Los Angeles, and episodes will be directed by Maggie Kiley ("Riverdale"), Kat Candler ("Queen Sugar"), Meera Menon ("The Terror"), Shannon Kohli ("The Magicians") and series creator/writer Alexandra Cunningham, who will be making her directorial debut. Jessica Rhoades ("The Affair") is also on board as executive producer.

Here's what Cunningham had to say about the new season:
"The first season of ‘Dirty John’ was a story of twisted love and coercive control – and both these insidious elements are also present in and integral to the story of Betty Broderick, whom I have wanted to write about since I became a writer."
