Connie Britton Will Star in Bravo's True-Crime Anthology 'Dirty John'
The show is based on the articles and true-crime podcast of Los Angeles Times reporter Christopher Goffard.
Will the 'Friday Night Lights' star ever leave the dispatcher station?
Britton will play Debra Newell, "a successful interior designer and single mom from Orange County" whose "romance with the charismatic John Meehan "spiraled into secrets, denial and manipulation," a news release from the cable network said.
The series has already been green-lit for two seasons.
