The project will be written by David E. Kelly and directed by Leslie Linka Glatter. Producers include Nicole Kidman and her Blossom Films company.
The HBO Max version is based on Proofs of Love: A True Story of Passion and Death in the Suburbs, as well as a collection of articles from the Texas Monthly. The show’s logline was introduced as follows: “Two couples go to church enjoying family life in a small Texas town. Until someone picks up an ax. “
It’s a gripping story about the frustrations and desires of two women from a small town, culminating in a horrific act of violence. We are very excited to partner with David, Leslie and Nicole. We are incredibly lucky to have Elizabeth Olsen at the center of our story. She will be able to show all the versatility of Candy’s personality.
– Said Head of Original Content HBO Max Sarah Aubrey.
Kevin Beggs, chairman of the Lionsgate Television Group, which will also be involved in the development of the project, noted that the film crew does not see another candidate for the role of Candy. He stressed that Elizabeth Olsen will be able to breathe life into the anti-heroine thanks to her charisma, talent and ability to captivate the audience.
Candy Montgomery’s story takes place in the 1980s. The woman was an exemplary mother and housewife, and then she suddenly hacked her friend with an ax.
When the premiere of the series “Love and Death” with Elizabeth Olsen in the title role will take place has not yet been specified.
