What is Based on a True Story (TV) About?
Based on a True Story is a dark comedy thriller television series from the United States, exploring the interconnected tales of a real estate agent, a plumber, and an ex-professional tennis player. The show focuses on Ava Bartlett, a pregnant realtor with a keen interest in true crime, her husband Nathan Bartlett, a once-celebrated tennis star turned tennis coach grappling with a career-halted by injury, and Matt Pierce, a seemingly unassuming plumber.
