The synopsis reads: "For John, charm truly is effortless, and Debra is entranced.

"She draws the line at his first date advances, however, and a flash of his temper hints at something darker.

"Alongside her adult daughters' concerns, it should be enough to put the relationship on pause. But John knows just how to keep her hooked..."

The eight-part series was first shown on Bravo and streamed on Netflix in 2018, and was originally based on a podcast telling the true story of John's deceit and lies.

As well as the TV series, a documentary delving into John's real life crimes is also available to watch on Netflix.
