Dirty John on Netflix – A Harrowing Real-Life Thriller

Online daters, beware. Netflix’s Dirty John will give you nightmares and could quite possibly contribute to an online dating activity plunge once the show gains traction.

Eric Bana plays “Dirty John” Meehan in this eight-part true crime anthology series. It’s based on the Los Angeles Times podcast of the same name. John is a seemingly charming man who turns out to be dirty in every sense of the word. He preys on vulnerable women through dating sites and wreaks havoc in their lives, stopping at nothing to extort money from them.

He meets cashed up interior designer, Debra Newell (Connie Britton), and within weeks has intertwined himself in her life and driven a wedge between her and her family. What unfolds is horrific.

Eric Bana and Connie Britton are superbly cast and the terror is unrelenting.

Dirty John – A Terrifying True Crime Podcast from the L.A. Times

The six-part podcast, ‘Dirty John‘, is a true story about seduction, deception, forgiveness, denial, and ultimately, survival. It’s reported and hosted by Christopher Goffard from the L.A. Times.

Debra Newell is a successful interior designer. She meets John Meehan, a handsome man who seems to check all the boxes: attentive, available, just back from a year in Iraq with Doctors Without Borders. But her family are not fond of John and as it turns out, they have good reason to feel this way.

John Meehan is what nightmares are made of so settle in and prepare yourself.
