It wouldn’t be a production of David E. Kelly if someone with a seemingly perfect life hadn’t been killed and / or accused of killing such a perfect person, and his new limited series on HBO Max wouldn’t be any different; it will just be real. According to a press release on Monday, the streamer gave a serial order to Love and death, Starring WandaVisionis Elizabeth Olsen as Candy Montgomery. The show is “inspired by” John Bloom and Jim Atkinson’s 2016 book with real crimes Evidence of Love: A True Story of Passion and Death in the Suburbs and Texas Monthly’s “Love and Death on the Silicon Prairie, Part I and Part II.”
On HBO Max, Love and death, written by Kelly and directed by Leslie Linka Glatter, will follow “two couples in a church enjoying family life in a small Texas town while someone raises an ax.” As for who might be someone, well, let’s just say that the Scarlet Witch is not the only character of Elizabeth Olsen who will eventually leave an entire city traumatized. Except again, this whole story is true.
