Based on the breakout true crime podcast, Bravo’s Dirty John is a retelling of the spiraling romance between Debra Newell (Connie Britton) and con man John Meehan (Eric Bana). Setting the tone for the Los Angeles-based series is composer and Devo frontman Mark Mothersbaugh, who recently scored Thor: Ragnarok, Disenchantment, and the upcoming The Lego Movie 2. We spoke with Mothersbaugh about scoring Dirty John, which just wrapped up its first season last week.
