The trailer for The Girl From Plainville, a drama starring Elle Fanning as Michelle Carter, the adolescent at the heart of the “texting-suicide” case that made headlines in 2014, has been released by Hulu.
Inspired by the self-titled Jesse Barron Esquire article, The Girl From Plainville is a limited series that delves into Carter’s relationship with Conrad Roy III and the events leading up to his death, as well as her subsequent trial and conviction for involuntary manslaughter.
Fanning chronicles Michelle’s first meetings with classmate Conrad Roy (Colton Ryan), their blossoming infatuation, Conrad’s tragic death, and her ultimate judgment. The suspenseful teaser also stars Chloe Sevigny as Conrad’s mother Lynn, who begins to have doubts about her son’s partner.
Liz Hannah and Patrick Macmanus co-wrote and produced the series, which is also executive produced by Fanning and Echo Lake‘s Brittany Kahan Ward. Erin Lee Carr and Barron are among the consultants that have worked on the project. Kelly Funke is in charge of supervising Littleton Road Productions, which is owned by Macmanus. UCP, a branch of Universal Studio Group, is also responsible for the production of the series.
Hulu’s The Girl From Plainville is slated to debut on 29th March.
