True crime podcasts are such a big thing that we now have not one, but two shows all about characters making one to document their own local serial killer.

Following in the tradition of Only Murders in the Building is Craig Rosenberg’s Based on a True Story, an eight-episode dark comedy thriller about a couple (Kaley Cuoco and Chris Messina) who set up their own podcast after realizing they know local Los Angeles serial killer the “West Side Ripper.”

The new series also stars Tom Bateman, Priscilla Quintana, Liana Liberato, Natalia Dyer, Alex Alomar Akpobome, Aisha Alfa, Annabelle Dexter-Jones, and Li Jun Li.

Based on a True Story is available to stream on Peacock from June 8.
