by | Mar 18, 2022 | All, TV News

Jessica Biel’s next role sees her star as notorious serial killer Candy Montgomery in a five-part drama for HULU and presumably Disney+ in the UK. The series, entitled Candy, sees Montgomery, a seemingly normal housewife in small-town Texas, who was convicted in 1980 for the brutal axe murder of her neighbour Betty Gore, played in the show by Yellowjackets star Melanie Lynskey.

The trailer sees Biel transform into Candy, with curly hair and large rimmed glasses. Footage of her going about her daily life in suburbia is juxtaposed with narration from her trial, as a lawyer played by Raúl Esparza (Hannibal) questions her about her relationship with Betty.

The series will also star Timothy Simmons (Veep) as Candy’s husband Pat Montgomery and Pablo Schreiber (Halo) as Betty’s husband Alan Gore. The series was created by Robin Veith, who previously wrote for the Hulu true-crime series The Act, who writes four episodes of the series.

Candy will run across a week on HULU beginning Monday 9th May.
