Oxygen,  the network for high-quality true crime programming, takes a deep dive into the story that captivated a nation, the case of La Jolla socialite Betty Broderick, in “Snapped: Betty Broderick,” premiering Wednesday, July 15, at 8 p.m. ET/PTConvicted of murdering her ex-husband,  Dan Broderick and his new wife, Linda Broderick on November 5, 1989, “Snapped”  investigates the tale of a woman scorned, a shattered family, and a violent double murder.

“Snapped: Betty Broderick,” depicts the shocking details of the heinous murders of Betty’s ex-husband, Dan, and his new wife, Linda, along with the investigation, and trial that led to Betty’s 32-years-to-life sentence. Through in-depth interviews with former detective, Terry Degelder, friends of Dan Broderick, Betty’s attorney Jack Farley, and the author of Forsaking All Others: The Real Betty Broderick Story, Loretta Schwartz-Nobel, the episode delves into the history of Betty and Dan’s relationship and its ultimate demise. 

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?

"Snapped" is produced by Jupiter Entertainment with Stephen Land, Patrick Reardon, Todd Moss and Dale Fisher serving as executive producers.
