Candy, a new Hulu series, will tell the terrifying true tale of Candy Montgomery and Allan Gore.
Jessica Biel plays the famed axe killer who murdered her neighbour Betty Gore in the series, which will premiere on May 9. (played by Melanie Lynskey).
The murder case shocked Wylie, Texas, and the new miniseries promises to be just as startling.
Biel’s Candy takes the stand in the first teaser, which was published on March 17, and describes her connection with Betty.
According to Variety, the series was previously announced in July 2020, with Elisabeth Moss scheduled to star, but she subsequently dropped out owing to scheduling issues.
Candy Montgomery story
Candy Montgomery is a fictional character. Candy was thought to be a “typical suburban housewife.” Pat Montgomery was her husband, and the couple had two children, a boy and a daughter.
Candy and her family relocated to Wylie in 1977, where they lived in her “ideal rural house.” Outsiders thought Candy and Pat’s lives was picture-perfect, but Candy thought her marriage was “extremely dull” and yearned for something more.
Betty Gore, who is she? Betty, like Candy, was a suburban Dallas wife and mother. She married Allan Gore in January 1970, and when their first child was born, he went to work for Rockwell International, a manufacturing multinational.
Betty obtained a position as an elementary school teacher in 1976, but “she didn’t love her employment for very long.” “She couldn’t handle her rowdy students, and she couldn’t tolerate being left alone at home when Allan had to travel,” Texas Monthly writes.
Is Candy Montgomery having an affair with Allan Gore?
Candy and Allan collided head-on during a church volleyball game in the summer of 1978 as they both attempted to make a play on the same ball.
Candy believed Allan “smelled attractive” and fantasized about having an affair with him, according to the stories.
Candy approached Allan in his car one night after choir practise, saying she’d been thinking about him a lot and wanted to know if they should act on their attraction.
Allan first turned down the offer, claiming that Betty had recently become pregnant again and that it would be “unfair to her,” but as he drove away from Candy’s car, he kissed her.
Is Candy Montgomery in prison? Candy testified on Friday, and by the following Wednesday, the jury had heard all of the concluding arguments and had made a decision on the same day.
Candy was declared not guilty and hence did not serve any time in prison for the murder of Betty.
