The Girl from Plainville has its star. Elle Fanning has been cast in the drama, which is coming to Hulu. Liz Hannah and Patrick Macmanus are behind the thriller series, which is about the Michelle Carter texting-suicide case. The story was recently the subject of I Love You, Now Die, an HBO documentary.
Deadline revealed the following about the plot of the Hulu series:
“The Girl From Plainville is considered the definitive account of the events that led Michelle Carter, a young woman from a small town in Massachusetts, to stand trial for her boyfriend Conrad Roy’s homicide, as prosecutors argued that her calls and texts fueled his suicide when they were both teens.”
A premiere date was not revealed for the series, but it was ordered straight-to-series by the streaming service.
