While Hulu will lose much of its current content from NBC, the streamer has plenty on the horizon that subscribers will continue to be interested in and eager to see, like Candy, an upcoming true-crime biopic. The show is based on the true story of Candy Montgomery, a Methodist housewife who murdered her friend Betty Gore in 1980. Emmy-nominated actress Jessica Biel (The Sinner) will play Montgomery. Interestingly, Handmaid’s Tale star Elisabeth Moss was originally set to play Montgomery, but it was reported in October that she had to drop out of the role due to scheduling conflicts.
Montgomery lived in Wylie, Texas, and was married to Pat Montgomery, an electrical engineer for Texas Instruments. He met Gore while attending Lucas Methodist Church. The couple became close friends, but their friendship turned into a rivalry when it was discovered that Montgomery had been having an affair with Gore’s husband, Allan.
The argument between the two women turned violent, with Montgomery eventually killing Gore with an axe. Montgomery was tried and found not guilty by the jury, who found her not guilty in her own defense. According to Wiki, Montgomery is still alive and living in Texas. As of now, Candy has no announced premiere date, but the series is currently in production.
