In the new Peacock series “Based on a True Story,” Kaley Cuoco plays a woman obsessed with true crime. She listens to podcasts about murder to help her fall asleep at night, analyzes the cases with her friends, and one day hatches a plan to start her own podcast where she and her husband (Chris Messina) interview a serial killer. Cuoco, like many, is a fan of the true crime genre. It’s a growing industry that includes podcasts, books, TV shows and even events like Crime-Con.  “Based on a True Story” debuts June 8.
