Dirty John: Bravo Series Starring Eric Bana and Connie Britton

Eric Bana will play the lead role opposite Connie Britton in the Bravo anthology series Dirty John.

Bravo gave “Dirty John” a two-season order.

The scripted anthology series is based on the series of articles published by the Los Angeles Times’ last fall. Bana, in his U.S. TV debut, will star as John Meehan, a handsome, 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.

Bana starred in several TV shows in his native Australia, but is known for his American film work: “Black Hawk Down,” “Hulk,” “Troy,” “Munich,” and “Star Trek.”
