Hulu has released the trailer for the five-episode series “Candy,” starring Jessica Biel and based on the true story of Candy Montgomery, a Texas housewife who is involved in the shocking 1980 death of Betty Gore. Biel also serves as executive producer of the miniseries.
The series follows the real life story of Montgomery, who had an affair with Gore’s husband. After she was confronted about the rumors, she attacked Gore with an axe 41 times. The show details before the murder, as Montgomery and Gore become friends, then reaches the trial where Montgomery acquitted of murder. A psychiatrist testified that Montgomery had a “dissociative reaction” at the time of the attack.
Biel also executive produced the miniseries, like she did the hit show “The Sinner.”
Candy also stars “Yellowjackets” actress Melanie Lynskey, Timothy Simons and Pablo Schreiber, and is set to premiere on May 9. New episodes will be released daily through May 13.
