Zellweger had her hands full as she shouldered four bags including a brown and a black duffel bag, a black satchel, a black quilted tote bag, a black handbag and a beige Louis Vuitton purse.

Duhamel is playing attorney Joel Schwartz, who defended Russ Faria after he was accused of murdering his wife Betsy.   

In July this year, Hupp – who is already serving a life sentence for shooting a disabled man dead – plead not guilty to the 2011 murder of her friend Betsy, who was stabbed 55 times.

Prosecutors have alleged that Hupp killed Faria four days after persuading her to switch a $150,000 life insurance policy to her, and was accused of trying to frame Russ.   

Russ, who will be played by Glenn Fleshler in the series, was initially convicted of his wife’s murder in 2013 and sentenced to life in prison. 

His conviction was overturned in 2015 before he was found not guilty in a retrial where prosecutors argued Hupp was responsible.

The case was the subject of five episodes of NBC’s Dateline that aired from 2014 to 2019 and became one of the newsmagzine’s most popular topics.

Hupp was sentenced to life without the possibility for parole in 2019 for luring Louis Gumpenberger, 33, to her home claiming to be a producer for Dateline before shooting him dead in an elaborate plot to divert attention from herself in the Faria case. 

Speculation has also swirled that she was responsible for her own mother’s fatal fall in 2013.

Written by Jessika Borsiczky, The Thing About Pam also stars Katy Mixon, Judy Greer, Gideon Adlon, Sean Bridgers, Suanne Spoke and Mac Brandt.

A release date for the series has not yet been released by NBC.
