A boy falls in love with a teen girl. Sounds like the premise of an extremely romantic drama that might turn out to be a tear-jerker because of the hardships the couple faces. But what if this tear-jerker is not what you think? No romance, just some killing. Sounds horrific, right? That’s what Hulu’s The Girl From Plainville is. Intense and messed up. And adding to the gravity of it, it is based on a true crime.
With the shows like American Crime Story, Fear City: New York vs The Mafia, and Who Killed Malcolm X?, the true crime genre has earned itself a massive viewership. And The Girl From Plainville might just add to it.
The upcoming series is based on the Commonwealth vs. Michelle Carter case of 2017 where Michelle was convicted of involuntary manslaughter for the death of her boyfriend Conrad Roy III. The case gained huge media coverage due to the controversial pieces of evidence and the possibilities behind it.
The upcoming series is being created by Liz Hannah & Patrick Macmanus and will star Elle Fanning and Colton Ryan as the convict and the victim, respectively.
