Peacock today revealed first look photos from the upcoming dark comedy thriller, Based on a True Story, created by Craig Rosenberg (The Boys, Peacher) and Jason Bateman (Air, Ozark). All episodes will premiere on the streaming platform on June 8 starring Kaley Cuoco (The Flight Attendant, The Big Bang Theory), Chris Messina (Air, I Care A Lot), Tom Bateman (Thirteen Lives, Behind Her Eyes), Priscilla Quintana (Good Trouble, Pandora), Liana Liberato (Scream VI, Light As a Feather), Natalia Dyer (Stranger Things, Yes, God, Yes), Alex Alomar Akpobome (Industry, Twenties), Aisha Alfa (Good Trouble, Sorry For Your Loss), Annabelle Dexter-Jones (Succession, Under the Silver Lake), and Li Jun Li (Babylon, Sex/Life).
According to Peacock, the series “is about a realtor, a former tennis star and a plumber who seize a unique opportunity to capitalize on America’s obsession with true crime.”
Over the last decade, a true crime phenomenon has swept over America. Podcasts, documentaries, fictional shows based on true stories – they dominate the culture. Murderers have become celebrities and celebrities have become murderers which inspired me to create this show.
I became fascinated with the idea of a relatable married couple whose youthful dreams hadn’t come to fruition and who saw the true crime tidal wave as an opportunity to change their lives and save their marriage. Our Los Angeles setting – the city where everybody wants to be famous – became a vivid backdrop to our story of fame, ambition, aspiration and murder.
Please sit back and join Ava and Nathan as they try to navigate the dangerous proposal they make.Craig Rosenberg, Creator/Showrunner/Executive Producer/Writer
