Casting News - Connie Britton to Star in and Executive Produce Bravo's Upcoming Anthology 'Dirty John'

Casting News - March 26, 2018

Bravo's Dirty John.

  • Connie Britton will star in and executive produce the upcoming anthology series created by Alexandra Cunningham. She starred for five seasons in NBC's Friday Night Lights and five seasons in CMT's Nashville. She also appeared in the first seasons of FX's American Horror Story, FX's The People v. O.J. Simpson, Showtime's SMILF and FOX's 9-1-1 (where she only had a one-year deal as a series regular, though may return on a recurring basis).
  • She will play Debra Newell, who fell for John Meehan after meeting him via an over-50 dating site. The series tells the story of how this romance spiraled into secrets, deception, denial and, ultimately, survival - with shocking ramifications for not just her, but her children. Meehan denounced Newell's children, who immediately saw him as a con artist.
