Who's Fauna Hodel?
Inspired by the most outrageous murder of Hollywood, #ChrisPine and @PattyJenks assembled for #AmTheNight . Premiere on January 28 @TNTDrama . GoDie, who died in 2017, was the daughter of a teenage mother named Tamar's daughter of a famous Hollywood doctor. After baby's birth, Tamar claims the father is black.

When Jenkins met with Huddle and heard her story, she knew she wanted to bring it to the screen, Jenkins said, "the absolute heart of one of the most famous true crime stories in history," Jenkins said of Hodell, but it took a decade to separate the project, Jenkins and her husband and screenwriter Sam Sheridan managed to convey the story of TNT. about the past. Once Hodel meets Singletary, the couple is allied to "follow a sinister path" that leads directly to Hollywood's "darkest debauchery" and "the most scandalous undisclosed crime."
