Hulu's The Act TV Show Trailer

The Act Trailer: The Chilling True-Crime Story of Gypsy and Dee Dee Blanchard Comes to Hulu

The stranger-than-fiction true crime story of mother-daughter pair Dee Dee Blanchard and Gypsy Blanchard is coming to the small screen courtesy of Hulu, and the first trailer, above, is downright chilling.

In The Act, which is being billed as "a seasonal anthology series that tells startling true crime stories," we meet the onscreen version of Dee Dee (Escape at Dannemora's Patricia Arquette), who initially appears to be a dedicated mother caring for her extremely ill daughter, Gypsy Rose (The Kissing Booth's Joey King). Over time the truth about their troubled bond is revealed, as people begin to wonder if Gypsy is indeed as sick as her mom says, or if it's a devastating case of Munchausen syndrome by proxy. Eventually — as we see in the trailer when a seemingly healthy Gypsy is asked in the courtroom if she killed her mom — their relationship ends in murder.

The Blanchard case was most recently explored in HBO's 2017 documentary Mommy Dead and Dearest, as well as Michelle Dean's investigative piece about the ordeal for BuzzFeed News (Dean is serving as coshowrunner alongside Channel Zero's Nick Antosca). AnnaSophia Robb and Chloë Sevigny also costar in the series, which is set to premiere on March 20.
