NBC’s The Thing About Pam Cast, Trailer, and Release Date
True-crime-lovers have another series to look forward to next month: “The Thing About Pam.” The 2011 murder of Betsy Faria will be the subject of an upcoming NBC crime-drama series. Starring two-time Oscar winner Renée Zellweger as convicted murderer Pam Hupp, “The Thing About Pam” follows the real-life story behind Faria’s brutal death that was featured in several episodes of “Dateline NBC” before being turned into a popular podcast in 2019.
For those unfamiliar with the story, Faria was found stabbed to death inside her Missouri home by her husband, Russ, just two days after Christmas. Russ was arrested and convicted, though he insisted he didn’t kill his wife and was eventually exonerated after a 2015 retrial — which caused investigators to refocus their attention to Hupp. The 63-year-old mother of two is serving a life sentence after being charged with murder in a separate case. Back in July, Hupp was charged with Faria’s murder and pleaded not guilty. She’s currently awaiting trial.
