February 15, 2024

Sky confirms the acquisition of Based On A True Story which has been renewed for a second season, following the  success of season 1 on Sky Max and NOW.

A dark, comedic thriller, Based On A True Story is a satire of the true crime genre with elements that are loosely inspired by true events. Series 1 follows Ava (Kaley Cuoco) and her husband Nathan (Chris Messina), a down-on-their-luck couple, whose lives collide with an infamous serial killer terrorising Los Angeles and seize a unique opportunity to capitalise on America’s obsession with true crime by making a podcast with the killer. 

Katie Keenan, Group Director of Acquisitions, Sky UK, said: “We are delighted to confirm Kaley Cuoco and Chris Messina will be returning to Sky for a second season of dark comedy Based On A True Story. The first series was a huge hit and we can’t wait to see what the next series has in store for the true crime obsessed duo”.
