“If you listened right up until the last disturbing seconds of true story podcast Dirty John, seeing it turned into a television series is a pretty harrowing experience.

The six-part podcast presented by Los Angeles Times journalist Christopher Goffard and produced by Wondery (who also produced Dr. Death), has been made into a Bravo series. And now, we have a trailer.

Add Saturday Night Live‘s “So You’re Willing to Date a Magician?” to the Breaking Hall of Fame.

The dating show sketch, which featured Awkwafina as a bachelorette who’s “not feeling too picky right now,” was pretty funny on its own. But Leslie Jones laughing so hard she had to hide behind her question card puts it squarely into “delightful” territory.
