The Act

Recommended Posts

New Hulu true crime anthology series—premiere date TBD. The first season will tell the Gypsy Blanchard story. 

From Deadline:



Joey King (The Kissing Booth) is set as the co-lead opposite Patricia Arquette in the first season of The Act, Hulu’s character-based anthology series from writers Nick Antosca and Michelle Dean and Universal Cable Productions. 

Written by Dean and Antosca and directed by Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre, The Actis a seasonal anthology series that tells startling, stranger-than-fiction true crime stories. The first season is based on Dean’s 2016 Buzzfeed article “Dee Dee Wanted Her Daughter To Be Sick, Gypsy Wanted Her Mom To Be Murdered.” It follows Gypsy Blanchard (King), a girl trying to escape the toxic relationship she has with her overprotective mother, Dee Dee (Arquette). Her quest for independence opens a Pandora’s box of secrets, one that ultimately leads to murder.


I'm not really sure how Patricia Arquette is going to pull off playing Dee Dee Blanchard but it should be interesting.

Not feeling the Dee Dee from Patricia in this pic but given that she's killing it in Escape at Dannemora right now, I'm willing to believe her performance in this will be just as incredible.
