Hulu’s original limited series will debut Wednesday, March 20 with two episodes, and subsequent episodes released every Wednesday on Hulu.
The Act is a seasonal anthology series that tells startling, stranger-than-fiction true crime stories. The first season follows Gypsy Blanchard, a girl trying to escape the toxic relationship she has with her overprotective mother. Her quest for independence opens a Pandora’s box of secrets, one that ultimately leads to murder.
Based on the article Dee Dee Wanted Her Daughter To Be Sick, Gypsy Wanted Her Mom To Be Murdered by Michelle Dean, the series is written and executive produced by Dean and Nick Antosca alongside Greg Shephard and Britton Rizzio who also serve as executive producers.
