NBC takes Zellweger’s Pam to series

US broadcast network NBC has given true crime drama The Thing About Pam, starring Renee Zellweger, a straight-to-series order.

Betsy Faria’s murder featured on Dateline NBC

From Blumhouse Television, NBC News Studios and Big Picture Co, the six-parter will be written by Jessika Borsiczky (House of Lies, UnREAL), who will also serve as showrunner.

The Thing About Pam is based on the 2011 murder of Betsy Faria, which featured in several episodes of Dateline NBC and later spawned a podcast.

Zellweger will also executive produce the series, along with Carmella Casinelli, Jessika Borsiczky, Liz Cole, Noah Oppenheim, Jason Blum, Chris McCumber and Jeremy Gold.

Borsiczky said: “As someone who hasn’t missed an episode of Dateline in 10 years, what immediately stood out to me about Pam from other true crime stories is that while on its surface it has all the twists and turns of a thrilling whodunit murder mystery, it’s really a character story at its heart that reflects, in a profound way, the American landscape back to us.”
