Watch the Trailer for Based On A True Story

Kaley Cuoco and Chris Messina prove true crime is an obsession that never dies 

By Peacock Staff

Peacock has shared its first trailer for the forthcoming Original series Based On A True Story, which Variety called one of the "most anticipated shows of [the] summer." 

What Is Based On A True Story About? 

This dark comedy from the Emmy® Award nominated producer of The Boys and the executive producer of Ozark is about a realtor (Kaley Cuoco), a former tennis star (Chris Messina), and a plumber (Tom Bateman) who seize a unique podcasting opportunity that capitalizes on America’s obsession with true crime. 

“Over the last decade, a true crime phenomenon has swept over America,” creator Craig Rosenberg told Peacock. “Podcasts, documentaries, fictional shows based on true stories – they dominate the culture. Murderers have become celebrities and celebrities have become murderers which inspired me to create this show.” 

All eight episodes of Based On A True Story will be made available to stream June 8, only on Peacock.
