The new Hulu crime drama Candy follows the real-life crimes of the 1890s homemaker Candy Montgomery and comes from the minds of The Act collaborators Robin Veith and Nick Antosco. Jessica Biel plays the title character, well-respected churchgoer who appears to have everything going for her: a loving husband, two kids, and a place to call home. However, the fall out of a messy affair and the mundaneness of her everyday life might have tipped her over the edge. Following the brutal murder (41 times with an ax) of her best friend Betty Gore (Melanie Lynskey), Candy finds herself as the main suspect.
