House of Lies and UnReal vet Jessika Borsiczky will pen the six-episode series on the real-life, stranger-than-fiction story behind the 2011 murder of Betsy Faria that was featured on Dateline NBC. "The Thing About Pam is based on the murder of Betsy Faria, which resulted in her husband Russ’ conviction," per Deadline. "He always insisted that he did not kill her, and his conviction was later overturned as the brutal crime set off a chain of events that would expose a diabolical scheme deeply involving Pam Hupp, a role that will be played by Zellweger...The Betsy Faria case was examined on several episodes of Dateline, becoming one of the most popular topics to ever air on the hit NBC newsmagazine. It also became the subject of NBC News’ popular 2019 Dateline podcast The Thing About Pam, which remains one of the most downloaded podcasts on iTunes." This is two-time Oscar-winning Zellweger's second TV series after 2019's Netflix drama What/If.
