Actress Connie Britton has a brand new mini-series called Dirty John that will air tonight on Bravo. Britton is most known for her roles in Friday Night Lights and Nashville. In this new series, Britton plays the character Debra Newell who falls in love with the handsome doctor John Meehan. Meehan is being played by actor Eric Bana who’s known for playing Hector in the film Troy. This series has about nine episodes and will air at 9 PM.
This show was based off real life events which became a podcast hosted by Christopher Goffard from the L.A. Times. At first, the doctor seems to be the perfect guy that most women would dream of but is he too good to be true? After a while, Britton’s character begins to wonder about John especially after her family shows how much they dislike her new love interest. It isn’t long afterward that Debra discovers that John is anything but perfect as he begins to put her in an abusive relationship by using psychological manipulation. Can she manage to survive and get away from John all while trying to protect anyone else John could hurt?
