Executive producer Alexandra Cunningham says of the Connie Britton-starring Bravo true-crime anthology based on conman "Dirty" John Meehan: "Obviously in the #MeToo movement, to tell a story about why women don't listen to their intuition and why they can't throw off their conditioning is very relevant. A story about people meeting people on the internet and being conned when we're obviously living in a moment where even internet trolling is showing us that everybody wants to matter — and so somebody who goes on the internet specifically to find people who are trying to feel seen and be special and prey on that, that's not going to stop happening. It's going to keep happening as it's happening now." ALSO: The Walking Dead plays a key role in real-life Dirty John story, but the show won't factor in the Bravo series.
