“Based On A True Story” Release Date and everything we know: Roman Polanski and Olivier Assayas collaborated on the 2017 psychological thriller Based on a True Story, which they both directed and wrote from the same-titled novel by Delphine de Vigan. It was shown at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival outside of competition.
The protagonist of the movie is the author Delphine (Seigner), who published her first book, a tribute to her mother, and so had her first professional triumph. She soon begins to, however, get anonymous letters accusing her of making her family’s personal information public. Delphine, who is depressed and experiencing writer’s block, meets and develops a friendship with Green, a mysterious younger lady who is charming, perceptive, and brilliant and who knows Delphine better than anybody else.
Here is what we currently know about Craig Rosenberg’s upcoming film “Based on a True Story,” which he will write and executive produce.
“Based On A True Story” Plot Story
Up until now, “Based on a True Story“‘s has remained a secret. As UCP president Beatrice Springborn noted, “There are certain factual stories that are weirder than fiction as is the case for the circumstances that inspire this show,” one thing that is now known is that the series is based on a real-life occurrence. “Based on a True Story” will feature “a realtor, a plumber, and a former tennis player whose lives suddenly intertwine, exposing America’s infatuation with true crime, murder, and the slow closing toilet seat,” according to the official logline.
There is only so much information available about the characters other than the fact that Kaley Cuoco’s part will be a married woman named Ava Bartlett, and Chris Messina’s character will be called Nathan.
We have no idea how the premise of the show will unite three characters from such seemingly unrelated backgrounds, nor do we know how slow-close toilet seats will play a part in a storyline involving crime and murder. However, given that “Based on a True Story” creator Craig Rosenberg was previously responsible for penning several memorable episodes of Amazon Prime Video’s “The Boys” and AMC’s “Preacher,” we have every reason to hope that his grand design will astound us all and that the show will have as witty, irreverent, and intelligent of an authorial voice as those earlier productions.
“Based On A True Story” Release Date
According to Looper, “Based on a True Story” was initially revealed on April 11, 2022. At the time, it was rumoured that Peacock had issued a straight-to-series order to the comedy thriller series from executive producers Craig Rosenberg, Jason Bateman, and Michael Costigan, which meant a complete season would go into production at once. Since shows are typically presented as complete units, whether streamed weekly or all at once; there have been examples of Peacock episodes adhering to both distribution methods, straight-to-series orders are usual in the streaming production pipeline.
Since then, no information has been published on the series’ release date or if it would be made available in its entirety at once or a few episodes at a time. If we look at the release dates of previous Peacock true crime programs, we can see that “Dr. Death” was first announced in October 2018 and that its first season premiered in July 2021.
Similarly, the “Joe vs. Carole” miniseries was first announced as “Joe Exotic” in November 2019 and then eventually debuted in March 2022 under its new title. Given previous examples, we might speculate that “Based on a True Story” may take up to two and a half years to reach viewers, placing its premiere date somewhere in the last quarter of 2024. Of course, this is just guesswork at this point.
“Based On A True Story” Cast Details
The amazing cast of “Based on a True Story” has been the focus of the most of the show’s announcements so far. First, Kaley Cuoco’s role as the series’ leader was revealed on August 8. Cuoco has, of course, been on a hot streak of popularity and fame since appearing in the critically praised hit HBO Max series “The Flight Attendant,” which earned her two straight Primetime Emmy nominations, even though she may be best recognised for her 12-year run on “The Big Bang Theory“.
In addition to being a well-established movie star, Chris Messina has also established himself as one of the most dependable TV personalities of the past ten years thanks to his appearances on shows like “The Mindy Project,” “The Newsroom,” “Sharp Objects,” and “The Sinner.” Messina will co-star with Cuoco as the show’s other lead.
The supporting cast of the program is also packed with rising stars. Early in November, it was revealed that actors Tom Bateman from “Da Vinci’s Demons,” Liana Liberato from “Light as a Feather,” and Priscilla Quintana from “Pandora” had joined the cast. They were joined by a strong cast later in the month, including “Stranger Things” star Natalia Dyer, “Industry” Season 2 breakout Alex Alomar Akpobome, Li Jun Li, who is expected to be one of the highlights of Damien Chazelle’s upcoming “Babylon,” “Succession” recurring actress Annabelle Dexter-Jones, and rising Canadian comedy star Aisha Alfa.
