Here's a First Look at Elizabeth Olsen Portraying Candy Montgomery in HBO's 'Love and Death'

The upcoming true crime miniseries is based on the accused axe murderer.

HBO has released a first look of what’s coming soon, which includes the upcoming miniseries Love and Death, starring Elizabeth Olsen as accused axe murderer Candy Montgomery.

The teaser shows Olsen as Montgomery doing different tasks, such as cooking, cleaning and singing in a church choir, as she narrates. She says in voiceover, “I have done all the things a wife is supposed to do. House. Kids. The meals.” Then, it cuts to a scene of her going up to her neighbor Allan Gore, portrayed by Jesse Plemons. “I’m very attracted to you,” she tells him. “Would you be interested in having an affair?”

The limited series is based on the real-life story of Candy, who was accused of murdering Allan’s wife, Betty Gore. Betty’s death took place in Wylie, Texas, on June 13, 1980; she was struck 41 times with a wooden axe during the assault, which Candy was found not guilty of. During the trial, Candy pled self-defense. She claimed she was defending herself after Gore had attacked her first for discovering her affair with Allan.

Afterwards, Candy allegedly started a new life in Georgia and became a family counselor and certified therapist.

Love and Death premieres in 2023 on HBO. Watch the teaser above.
