Storyline

The description reads:

"Debra Newell has a seemingly perfect life: she’s successful, beautiful and lives in one of California’s most desirable coastal cities, Newport Beach. The only thing missing is love.

"So when she finally meets charming and handsome doctor John Meehan, she’s quickly swept into a whirlwind romance, much to the dismay of her daughters Terra and Veronica..

"Their fast-tracked relationship creates tension between Debra and the girls, leaving them no choice but to investigate the stranger who has swept their mother off her feet.

"And with a fraught family history, the backstory of Debra and her mother Arlane provides insight into why she may have been so vulnerable to John in the first place.

"As Debra gets drawn deeper into his lies and sinister game of psychological manipulation, it results in horrific consequences for an entire family."

Dirty John will be available on Netflix from Thursday February 14th.
