“We can never allow Betty or Pat to get hurt.” HBO Max has unveiled their full official trailer for the true crime series Love & Death, streaming this April. Ready for yet another true crime series? This is a story most know already, as its been told plenty of times before. Two churchgoing couples enjoy small town family life in Texas – until somebody picks up an axe. Based on the true story of housewife Candy Montgomery, who was accused of the brutal axe murder of her friend Betty Gore in 1980. If this sounds familiar, it is – this exact same murder was already adapted into a streaming series called Candy, starring Jessica Biel as Candy, from last year. This looks like a more epic HBO version of this crime. Love & Death stars Elizabeth Olsen and Jesse Plemons as lovers Candy and Allan, with a cast including Patrick Fugit, Lily Rabe, Keir Gilchrist, Elizabeth Marvel, Tom Pelphrey, Krysten Ritter, & Beth Broderick. Both of these lead performances look damn good, just not sure what’s new in telling this same exact axe murderer story again.
Here’s the full official trailer (+ poster) for HBO Max’s series Love & Death, direct from YouTube:
