“Dirty John” creator Alexandra Cunningham didn’t want to change the true story of Betty Broderick’s brutal 1989 murder of her ex-husband and his new wife. But her version tells the tale of what led her to that.
The second season of the true crime anthology series, premiering Tuesday at 9 p.m. on USA Network, follows Broderick, a quintessential ‘80s California housewife and mom who gave up her own life to guide her husband Dan’s career.
“She went from living with their parents to living as someone’s wife,” Amanda Peet, who plays Betty in “Dirty John: The Betty Broderick Story,” told the Daily News. “She didn’t have any identity outside of that.”
“Everything was designed to contribute to his success,” she told The News. “They climbed that mountain together and they made those sacrifices together, and then suddenly they got to the top of the mountain and Dan decided he wanted something else.”
Eventually, Dan Broderick, played by Christian Slater, gets bored, having moved from medicine to law and now pulling in more money than they know what to do with, and finds freedom in his 21-year-old intern, Linda Kolkena.
