USA Sets Premiere Date for 'Dirty John: The Betty Broderick Story' Starring Amanda Peet and Christian Slater

USA has today announced the premiere date for the second installment of the original anthology series Dirty John.

The 8-part second season - entitled Dirty John: The Betty Broderick Story - will launch on Tuesday, June 2 at 9/8c. with back-to-back episodes.

Betty Broderick was the perfect Southern California blonde wife and mother. Married to her handsome college boyfriend Dan, she charms everyone she meets. 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 labor. That is, until Dan hires Linda, a bright, beautiful young woman without baggage with whom he can happily forget the struggles of his past. Betty's attempts to fight back and enraged refusals to accept reality only serve to isolate and destabilize her until she loses her very identity. And Dan's cold confidence blinds him to the bear he has created, and won't stop poking... until it's too late.

The new season stars Amanda Peet, Christian Slater, Rachel Keller, Missi Pyle, Holley Fain, Lena Georgas, Tiera Skovbye, Chris Mason and Emily Bergl.

Alexandra Cunningham created the series and returns as showrunner for the second season. She executive produces with Jessica Rhoades and Season 1 star Connie Britton. Universal Content Productions, Atlas Entertainment and Los Angeles Times Studios produce.
