Hulu has been working on its latest true-crime series called, The Act. The series is based on a real story. It follows the tragic story of Dee Dee Blanchard and her daughter Gypsy Rose. Back in 2015, Gypsy was sentenced to serve ten years in prison after she murdered Dee Dee. Dee Dee had raised Gypsy as a critically ill person, and she had kept Gypsy in a wheelchair for the entirety of her childhood. However, things quickly changed after the death of Dee Dee.
The show is based on a 2016 BuzzFeed investigative piece. The story of this murder didn’t go viral until a year after the killing of Dee Dee in 2015. In a story, it was revealed that Gypsy and her boyfriend were responsible for the murder of Dee Dee.
Moving on to the cast of the show. The cast boasts of some talented actors so we should look forward to an enthralling season. Here is the cast of the show:
Patricia Arquette as Dee Dee Blanchard
Joey King as Gypsy Blanchard
Chloë Sevigny as Mel
AnnaSophia Robb as Lacey

When Dee Dee’s body was found, Gypsy was nowhere to be found. However, after a day she was found alive with Nick Godejohn. Gypsy had met Nick online. The two of them were later charged. Nick was charged for stabbing Dee Dee to death while Gypsy was arrested for aiding.
There will be only one season of the show.
