Eric Bana to star opposite Connie Britton in Dirty John series

Eric Bana (The Finest Hours, The Forgiven) is set to star opposite Golden Globe nominee Connie Britton (Nashville, 9-1-1) in the first season of Bravo Media‘s scripted anthology series Dirty John, based on the articles and breakout true crime podcast of the same name from Los Angeles Times reporter Christopher Goffard.

Marking his U.S. television debut, Bana is set to star as John Meehan, a handsome and romantic charmer who sweeps Debra Newell (Britton) off her feet and pulls her into his web of lies. The series chronicles the true story of how a romance with Meehan spiraled into secrets, denial, and manipulation.

Dirty John is produced by Universal Cable Productions in association with Los Angeles Times Studios and Atlas Entertainment. The series will be executive produced and written by Alexandra Cunningham (Chance, Desperate Housewives). Britton and Bana will also serve as executive producers alongside Richard Suckle and Charles Roven for Atlas Entertainment as well as Mark Herzog, Christopher G. Cowen, and Chris Argentieri for Los Angeles Times Studios.

Bana’s other credits include Munich, Black Hawk Down, Star Trek, Funny People, Lone Survivor, and Hanna. He can currently be seen opposite Forest Whitaker in the thriller The Forgiven, directed by Roland Joffe.
