Hulu has ordered the scripted true crime series about Candy Montgomery, with Jessica Biel now attached to star.
The project was first announced as being in the works in July 2020, landing at Hulu in December. At that time, “The Handmaid’s Tale” star Elisabeth Moss was attached to play the lead role. According to an individual with knowledge of the situation, Moss bowed out due to scheduling conflicts.
The series tells the true story of Montgomery, a Texas housewife who infamously murdered her friend Betty Gore with an ax in 1980. Biel will star in the role of Montgomery.
