People writes that “The Thing about Pam” dives into Faria’s 2011 murder and is based on a podcast with the same name. Zellweger is not only the show’s star; she is also its executive producer. Speaking about her decision to play Hupp, Zellweger said that the tale’s “escalating absurdities” drew her to the role. Furthermore, she felt like it was a story that “you couldn’t make up.” Zellweger even admitted to binging the podcast and felt like it would be “interesting to explore further.” However, some controversy has followed after stills from the show were released.

According to The Mirror, Zellweger employed the use of prosthetics and a fat suit to transform into Hupp. As she has dramatically lost and gained weight for roles before, she explained that it’s negatively affected her health and ultimately, she won’t be doing it again. Critics have asked why a plus-size actor wasn’t chosen to play Hupp instead. Refinery 29 believes that the decision to use a fat suit shows that “Hollywood still has a fatphobia problem.” Nonetheless, some praise Zellweger for her “unrecognizable” metamorphosis into Huff (via Town & Country Magazine).
