‘Based on a True Story’ Renewed at Peacock

No lie: Peacock is ordering a season 2 of Based on a True Story.

The NBCUniversal-owned streamer has picked up the series, a comedic thriller from UCP and starring Kaley Cuoco (who also executive produces) and Chris Messina. The first season debuted in June and earned mostly favorable reviews; detailed viewing data is, per usual with streamers, not public, but the series did land in Nielsen’s top 10 rankings for the week of its premiere.

About the show

Based on a True Story is, in fact, based on (or at least partly inspired by) a true story, while also satirizing true crime tropes. The series stars Cuoco and Messina as Ava and Nathan, a down-on-their-luck couple who cross paths with an infamous serial killer in Los Angeles. Ava, a true crime obsessive, hits on the idea of making a podcast with the killer as a way out of their rut.

Craig Rosenberg (The Boys and spinoff Gen V) created the series. He executive produced the first season with Cuoco, Aggregate Films’ Jason Bateman and Michael Costigan, and director Alex Buono. Roxie Rodriguez of Aggregate Films and Melissa Blake co-exec produced the first season.
