HBO is developing a limited series called My Dentist’s Murder Trial that David Harbour and Pedro Pascal will both star in and executive produce. Deadline shared that Patriot’s Steve Conrad is writing the series, executive producing, and will also direct the pilot episode.
My Dentist’s Murder Trial is based on 2017 New Yorker article “My Dentist’s Murder Trial: Adultery, False Identities, and a Lethal Sedation” by James Lasdun. The story was about Dr. Gilberto Nunez, who was indicted in 2015 for killing his friend Thomas Kolman by getting him “to ingest a substance that caused his death.” Nunez was also hit with two forgery counts, including for him posing as a C.I.A. agent, and he’d been having an affair with Kolman’s wife, Linda. Nunez went on trial in 2018, and while he was found not guilty of murder, he was found guilty on fraud charges, for which he was sent to prison.
