Candy is based on the true story of Candy Montgomery and her victim, Betty Gore. Set in 1980 Texas, where Candy Montgomery seemingly had it all – loving husband with a good job, a daughter and a son, a nice house in the brand new suburbs – so why did she kill her friend from church with an axe?
Initially reported back in July as in development with Elisabeth Moss signed to star as Montgomery, this report today from Deadline states that a writer’s room is being set up for the project. The series hails from Nick Antosca and Robin Veith, who will also serve as executive producers on the project along with Alex Hedlund, Elisabeth Moss and Lindsey McManus. Jim Atkinson and John Bloom will serve as consulting producers.
