Oxygen's series 'Snapped: Betty Broderick' is set to take on a prolific case that rocked the nation in 1989. The case of Betty Broderick has brought tears as well as anger to many, with some on her side and others that think her ex-husband Daniel Broderick pushed his ex-wife into insanity through gaslighting and a two-year affair. This is not the first product that has told the story of Betty's case. Some might remember early adaptations of the story such as 'A Woman Scorned: The Betty Broderick Story' and the most recent one being USA Network's 'Dirty John: The Betty Broderick Story'. Here is what we know about the upcoming episode of 'Snapped' that will feature this intense case.


Release date

'Snapped: Betty Broderick' premieres on July 15, 2020. 


Betty Broderick is still in prison after having killed her ex-husband Daniel Broderick and his second wife, Linda Kolkena Broderick, on the early morning of November 5, 1989. Oxygen's 'Snapped' is set to re-tell the woes of how Betty ended up committing such a heinous double murder. The preview released by Oxygen reveals, "Taking a different perspective, the special aims to unravel the age-old question: Had Betty Broderick been plotting a murderous attack all along against a husband who took her for granted for years, left her for a younger woman, and put her through a vicious custody trial — or did she just snap?"


The official synopsis reads: "On Nov. 5, 1989, powerful San Diego attorney Daniel Broderick and his new bride, Linda Kolkena Broderick, are slain. Detectives try to track down Dan's ex-wife, Betty Broderick, and they unearth twisted tales of a woman scorned, a shattered family, and a violent double-murder. 'Snapped: Betty Broderick' takes a deep dive into the story that captivated a nation."



Oxygen has revealed that the episode will have in-depth interviews with Terry Degelder, former detective and friends of Daniel, Jack Farley, Betty's attorney and Loretta Schwartz-Nobel, the author of 'Forsaking All Others: The Real Betty Broderick Story'. 


The series is produced by Jupiter Entertainment and Stephen Land, Patrick Reardon, Todd Moss and Dale Fisher serve as executive producers.



Oxygen had released the following video on May 28, 2020, along with its preview.
