The Dirty John Plot:
Based on the articles and breakout true crime podcast from Los Angeles Times reporter Christopher Goffard, Bravo’s scripted event series Dirty John tells the true story of how a romance between Debra Newell (Britton) and the charismatic John Meehan (Bana) spiraled into secrets, denial, manipulation, and ultimately, a fight for survival for an entire family.
Their fast-tracked romance creates tension between Debra and her two daughters Terra (Garner) and Veronica (Temple), leaving the girls no choice but to investigate the man who has swept their mother off her feet, while the backstory of Debra and her mother Arlane (Smart) provides insight into why Debra was so vulnerable to John in the first place.
