If you can't get enough of NBC's new true crime miniseries The Thing About Pam, it's likely that you'll be just as obsessed with the Deadline podcast that inspired the show.
"The absurdity of this case is so remarkable,” Renée Zellweger, who plays Hupp on the show, told Variety. “You start asking yourself, how is it possible that this could happen when there’s a pile of evidence that points away from the accused?”
First premiering in September 2019—and also dubbed The Thing About Pam—the podcast became an instant hit. Just like the TV show, it's narrated by legendary Dateline correspondent Keith Morrison.
“There are many things about Pam," he said on the Media Path Podcast. "In our explorations of her life and times, we discovered that she had been, for years and years and years, doing things that perhaps wouldn’t live up to people’s expectations of moral behavior. She was very good at doing bad things and then making sure that somebody else was blamed for them. That’s how this story came to be.”
