September 12, 2019 – Dateline NBC will launch the series’ first ever true-crime original podcast hosted by Keith Morrison to kick off Dateline’s 28th season. The six-episode series, The Thing About Pam, debuts September 18 and features the unbelievable story of how the murder of Betsy Faria set off a chain of events that would leave one man dead, another man implicated and a diabolical scheme exposed.
Morrison takes listeners behind the scenes of each unfolding chapter in the case, including why Betsy’s friend, Pamela Hupp, impersonated a real-life Dateline producer to lure a man to her home before murdering him. The all-new podcast reveals what happens when a true crime program becomes part of the story.
Dateline has reported on this multi-layered story for over five years, interviewing key players in the case along the way. The first two episodes will be available for download and streaming on any podcast platform on September 18, with the additional four premiering the following week.
