How to create average duration over time overlay in timechart

I have a time chart that displays the average duration of calls for each day in the time range, the time range is set with a time picker. The call duration is parsed out using the rex command.

rex field=_raw "Duration : (?<hh>\d+):(?<mm>\d+):(?<ss>\d+\.\d+)" | eval dur = (hh * 3600) + (mm * 60) + ss | timechart span=1d avg(dur)

The current results look like:

I am looking for something like this with the dashed line like so:

please elaborate, what will be the data populating the chart overlay?
try this search anywhere, in the case you are perusing some sort of running average:

| gentimes start=-7 increment=2h
| eval _time = starttime 
| eval duration = random()%1000 + 3000
| sort - _time
| timechart span=4h avg(duration) as avg_dur
| streamstats time_window=24h avg(avg_dur) as dur_running_avg
