Blumhouse TV is bringing a chilling true story to our screens...
...NBC News Studios and Blumhouse Television have released a teaser trailer for a limited series following the Pam Hupp case, which is coming on the heels of the success of Dateline NBC's podcast, The Thing About Pam, reported by Keith Morrison.
This will be the first joint project between the two companies, with Blumhouse TV set to produce more original scripted shows based off of content from Dateline NBC.
"The series follows the murder of Betsy Faria in 2011 that resulted in her husband Russ’s conviction. He insisted he did not kill her. His conviction was later overturned. This brutal crime set off a chain of events that would expose a diabolical scheme."
Said Marci Wiseman and Jeremy Gold, co-presidents of Blumhouse Television, “We’ve delved into true crime before with unscripted. We're not just looking for monsters under the bed, but also the things that keep us up at night so the chance to mine the incredibly rich trove of material from the Dateline archives to develop is a really unique and exciting opportunity for us...When we first came across 'The Thing About Pam', like thousands of others who’ve seen the Dateline episode and listened to the podcast, we were riveted. So when NBC presented this to us we jumped at making this our first scripted project with them.”
Liz Cole will executive produce for NBC News Studios. Jason Blum, Marci Wiseman and Jeremy Gold will executive produce for Blumhouse Television.
