We can’t wait for... DIRTY JOHN!

Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Out This Week -

Fans of hit true-crime pod­cast Dirty John are go­ing crazy for the up­com­ing TV adap­ta­tion of the story on US ca­ble chan­nel Bravo – and Aussie ac­tor Eric Bana is set to play the lead role!

The real-life story of “Dirty John” Mee­han and his part­ner Ju­lia Newell, who will be played by Con­nie Brit­ton ( Nashville), will be ex­plored in the first sea­son of the show.

John and Ju­lia met on an over-50s dat­ing site in 2014 and quickly formed a re­la­tion­ship. It soon be­came ap­par­ent all was not as it seemed and John’s life was a care­fully as­sem­bled web of lies.

To add to the brew­ing ex­cite­ment, the drama will air along­side a doc­u­men­tary ex­am­in­ing the facts of the in­trigu­ing case.

John and Ju­lia wed af­ter just two months. Eric Bana will play “Dirty John” Mee­han.
