Limited series The Thing About Pam is based on the hard-to-believe, real-life story that became a worldwide true-crime phenomenon. Starring two-time Oscar-winning actress Renée Zellweger who will make her broadcast TV debut as both executive producer and star alongside Josh Duhamel and Judy Greer, the six-episode straight-to-series order is produced by Blumhouse Television, NBC News Studios and Big Picture Co.

He was later exonerated. The brutal crime set off a chain of events that would expose a diabolical scheme deeply involving Pam Hupp, played by Zellweger.
