DESCRIPTION:
(from NBC's press release, November 2021) NBC's "The Thing About Pam" is based on the 2011 murder of Betsy Faria that resulted in her husband Russ's conviction, although he insisted he didn't kill her. His conviction was later overturned. This brutal crime set off a chain of events that would expose a diabolical scheme deeply involving Pam Hupp. A thorough examination of the scheme was featured on several episodes of "Dateline NBC," becoming one of the most popular topics to ever air on the hit NBC franchise. It also became the subject of a popular 2019 podcast, "The Thing About Pam," which remains one of the most downloaded podcasts on iTunes.
