The Thing About Pam S01e03 PORTABLE

JUDY GREER: The podcast, yes. I heard the podcast, but then of course once I knew they were making it and then once I got attached, I really dove in and gave it a real listen and did real research about it. It was just so unbelievable. I think that's what people really couldn't wrap their minds around was how insane this case was.

The Thing About Pam s01e03


I was scared. I was scared of not getting all of the lines right, which sounds so dumb probably because that's like the basic thing that we do as actors is memorize our lines, but I just wanted it to be so perfect. And I'm not used to legal jargon, so that was something. I'd never played a prosecuting attorney before and I'm like, "Are people going to buy it?" I was nervous for this one. And then early on, when I met Josh Duhamel and we first started working together, he was like, "I'm already memorizing. I pretty much have the whole courtroom stuff memorized." And this was day two. And I was like, "F--k really?" So he and I worked on it a lot, just getting our timing and the lines right.

I really didn't understand how hard those types of scenes are when you're not acting with anyone. You're not reacting to anyone. You're selling something. And I was like, "Wow you really have to have chops for this kind of work." I was always a Sam Waterston fan, but man, after doing that courtroom stuff, I was like, "He's a hero." [Laughs]

Thank you! That was my goal. I remember when 13 Going On 30 came out, I would get stopped on the street and people would be like, "You're mean!" And I'm like, "No, I'm an actor." I know we all love Jennifer Garner. I get it. You know it's a movie, right? I mean, I can't totally say that in this case, but it's fun. That's one of the cool things about my career is that I get to play all different kinds of characters. I get to play characters that have different stories and motivations. This one was really, really fun. It was a real departure for me. And I just feel so lucky that I got this chance. The longer you do this, you sometimes get typecast, so to be able to break out of it in something that's not like a small, independent, movie's always a good opportunity to do something different.

This is all based on Dateline reporting and we had an incredible team of legal professionals who were making sure that we were always telling the right story. And so anything that can't be proven really is not there for us to necessarily convey. There's a lot of alleged things in the story. And that was one of them. But no, there was nothing that was proven. So there wasn't really that story to tell necessarily.

Well, in my opinion, it gets a little bit crazier and, for me as an audience member, a little bit more heartbreaking. This is an absurd story and we are trying to highlight that and be very respectful to the families that lost their loved ones. We see more things unfolding in the back three episodes that are unbelievable. People ask me, "What is it about true crime?" I don't have an answer. I could also say, "Why do people slow down when there's a car accident?" We just can't help ourselves. And this is, to me, is one of the ultimate car accidents.

On May 19, 2020, it was reported that NBC News Studios and Blumhouse Television were developing an untitled scripted television series based on coverage from Dateline about the involvement of Pam Hupp in the murder of Betsy Faria as well as the sentencing and release of her husband, Russ Faria. Since 2014, Dateline has assigned multiple episodes to the story and created a podcast centered around the case in 2019 titled "The Thing About Pam".[10] In a statement, Cole said that "having been at the forefront of the true-crime genre for so long, we know better than anyone that truth is often stranger than fiction, and with the twists and turns in this case, we saw a real opportunity to present it in a scripted format". In addition to the series announcement, it was revealed Cole would executive produce alongside Jason Blum, Marci Wiseman, and Jeremy Gold.[11]

On September 28, 2021, Scott Winant was announced to be directing the first two episodes as well as executive producing. Filming was postponed until October 1, 2021.[20] At the second annual BlumFest in October, Zellweger spoke with Dateline correspondent Keith Morrison about portraying Hupp, "Truth is stranger than fiction. She's notorious, not famous. It won't be the same as coming to understanding a person's life experiences within context. [I am] going to be researching and trying to understand just based on the limited information that's available. I'm going to play the person that you sort of illuminated in your podcast and try to understand what makes a person like that tick".[21] Throughout October, Zellweger was photographed wearing face and body prosthetics to portray Hupp.[22][23] Filming took place in New Orleans and Hammond, Louisiana.[24]

The six-episode series will mostly focus on the murder of Betsy rather than the crime that led to Hupp's current imprisonment. According to Deadline, the show is largely inspired by Dateline NBC's podcast about the case, also titled The Thing About Pam. It will explore the aftermath of Russ' acquittal and what led to Hupp being charged for a second murder.

Viewers interested in the case have plenty of options for learning more while the wait for the show continues. In addition to the original podcast, Dateline NBC ran five TV episodes about the case from 2014 to 2019. Filmmaker Daniel Blake Smith is also working on a feature-length film adaptation of the story titled Proof.

He couldn't even let Sean finish his MMA session -- even if Sean was cool with leaving early -- because he was too wrapped in his feelings about Gaby's divorce. This is on top of Jimmy creating Sean's housing crises.

One of the best things about Shrinking is the deep characterization. A lot of the time, and for good reasons, Alice has the exterior of a porcupine. However, like Paul and unlike her dad, she can step outside herself and be generous to others.

Speaking of Gaby, "Fifteen Minutes" makes up for the previous lack of focus on the character. We learn a lot about her. She's a lot in the morning. She was married to Nico, who has substance abuse issues.

Again, it's to the credit of the writing that the show can quickly throw a lot of disparate information at you and still make the character cohesive. Even the seemingly trivial details, like Gaby naming her car Little Debbie, feel vital to know about the character.

In Berlin, Zhang Wu, a Chinese colonel, answers a call on his cell phone as he is walking. He speaks Mandarin as he explains he has to see the doctor but will be on the call. He enters a building and goes to the "Hot Medica" office where he signs a waiver. He learns that his regular nurse, Hortense, is unavailable. He is disappointed because it is his birthday and Hortense was going to do something special for him. The receptionist tells him she will see what they can do before confirming his safe word, "frühstück". While Zhang waits, he chats with another patient who hopes they won't be nice.

Niko cleans off a freshly laid egg from a chicken in their house as Eve wonders whether it is edible. Niko questions her about her new job and Eve explains it is just gathering and analyzing information.

Eve heads to the office talking to Bill on her cell phone about Carla de Mann's deadly asthma attack. She meets up with Bill carrying his baby daughter in front of their office and helps him with his "childcare emergency." Carolyn is in the office waiting for them with Elena and Kenny to let them know that there has been another assassination. Eve thinks that Carolyn is referring to Carla de Mann but Kenny tells her that it was a Chinese colonel, Zhang Wu, who has been killed. The name the assassin gave to the receptionist was "Eve Polastri". Outside, Eve paces as she begs Carolyn to keep her on the team. Carolyn asks her what she wants to do.

Eve and Bill have arrived in Berlin and take a taxi to the "Hot Medica" building where Villanelle sits across the street watching. They are greeted by Weber, one of Bill's contacts, who takes them to the murder scene where Zhang was poisoned with carbon monoxide. Jin Yeong from the Chinese government has asked for a second opinion on the autopsy so Eve will have to contact him for a copy of the autopsy report. They leave the building and Eve asks Bill to watch their suitcases while she calls Kenny to see if he can locate Jin's whereabouts from his email address. Kenny sends her Jin's location as she notices that her suitcase has gone missing.

Villanelle takes Eve's bag back to her room and goes through it, placing a green scarf around her neck. Konstantin shows up to find out why she is still in Berlin and to warn her that Eve is in town. He wants Villanelle to watch Eve. The American woman arrives and Villanelle introduces her as "Pamela" to her "angry uncle". Konstantin warns her one last time to not do anything stupid and leaves. Villanelle begins to dress Pamela in Eve's clothes.

Bill apologizes to Eve for losing her suitcase as they scope out Jin's location. She mentions that Niko will be upset about her losing the green scarf. They approach Jin and ask him about Zhang and the second autopsy, which now says that Zhang died of a heart attack. Jin invites Eve to dinner so they can continue their discussion. After they leave their meeting with Jin, Bill warns Eve that Jin wants to have sex with her. He tells her to get something nice because he will take her out afterwards. Villanelle bumps into Bill on the street and keeps walking.

While Eve tries on outfits for her dinner, she talks on the phone to Elena, asking for intel on Jin. While she tries on a dress, Villanelle keeps a watchful distance. Back at the hotel, Niko video calls her from a dinner party at their house that she had forgotten about. Niko asks her about her new dress and she explains about the dinner with Jin. Bill knocks on the door bringing her a razor. 041b061a72
