Jessica Biel will appear in the true-crime drama series ‘Candy’ as Candy Montgomery.
Biel will portray a Texas woman who murdered her friend Betty Gore in 1980 with an axe.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Biel has taken the position of Elisabeth Moss, who was previously attached to the series. Moss ultimately withdrew owing to schedule issues.
Biel will also act as the series’ executive producer. The show forced viewers to consider why Candy Montgomery, who had a successful family and career life, would murder her church buddy with an axe.
The Montgomery-Gore case has gained considerable attention from filmmakers, and it is the subject of one of two television series now under development. Elizabeth Olsen and Lily Rabe are also slated to appear in HBO Max’s second adaption, titled ‘Love and Death.’
Biel also served as an executive producer and appeared in the first season of USA’s ‘The Sinner.’
