True crime aficionados can watch Oscar-winning actress Renée Zellweger transform into Pam Hupp, the convicted murderer currently on trial for allegedly killing her best friend, Betsy Faria, in small-town Missouri.
Based on the Dateline NBC series and podcast of the same name, the limited series focuses on the murder of Betsy (played by Katy Mixon), who was found at home by her husband, Russ Faria (portrayed by Glenn Fleshler), with over 55 stab wounds. Although Russ was arrested and convicted of the crime, unanswered questions about the case led reporters and authorities to Hupp, who was the last person to see her friend alive.
The show also stars Judy Greer as Lincoln County prosecutor Leah Askey, Josh Duhamel as defense attorney Joel Schwartz and Mac Brandt as detective Ryan McCarrick.
The Thing About Pam premieres Tuesday, March 8 at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT on NBC. The limited series spans six episodes and airs weekly simultaneously, on the same day and time. The final episode airs on April 12.
