Obsessed with true crime? Then you won’t want to miss Peacock’s new series, Based On A True Story.
A dark comedic thriller, Based On A True Story 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. The series stars Emmy nominee Kaley Cuoco, Chris Messina, and Tom Bateman.
The show comes from creator/showrunner/executive producer/writer Craig Rosenberg (The Boys). Besides first look images from Peacock, Rosenberg shared this message with fans about the show:
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.

Based On A True Story will include 8 episodes. The series premieres on Peacock June 8.
