La trama di Based on a True Story
The eight-episode series follows a real estate agent, a former tennis star and a plumber who seize a unique opportunity to capitalize on America’s obsession “with true crime, murder and slow-closing toilets.” It is described as a dark comedy based on “a bizarre true fact”.
Thus the creator Craig Rosenberg spoke of the idea behind the series: “Over the past ten years, a real crime phenomenon has swept America. Podcasts, documentaries, fictional shows based on true stories dominate the culture. Killers have become celebrities, and celebrities have become killers which inspired me to create this series. I was fascinated by the idea of a married couple whose childhood dreams didn’t come true and who they saw the tidal wave of true crime as an opportunity to change your life and save your marriage. Our setting in Los Angeles, the city where everyone wants to be famous, became a vivid backdrop for our story about fame, ambition, aspiration and murder.
