Who Is Betty Broderick? Get to Know the New 'Dirty John' True Crime Story

'Dirty John' is moving to USA for Season 2 and dramatizing a decades-old crime saga.

The anthology series, now airing on USA instead of Bravo, is winding the clock back a half century to tell the story of Dan and Betty Broderick from its start in the 1960s to its tragic end in the 1980s.

Season 1 stars Connie Britton and Julia Garner both earned Critics’ Choice Television Award nominations for their performances—with Britton even earning a Golden Globe nod—and the stars of Season 2 could very well earn accolades, as well.

But how much do they physically resemble their real-life counterparts? Scroll down to see Peet, Slater, and costar Rachel Keller along with images of the people they play—via footage from USA’s mini-documentary Dirty John: The Broderick Files—and to see some of the show’s other actors in character.
