The Handmaid's Tale star has signed on to star in Candy, a Universal Content Productions limited series based on the story of Montgomery, a "normal suburban housewife" in Texas who in 1980 killed Betty Gore, her lover's wife and friend from church, with an ax. Candy reunites Moss with Robin Veith, who penned the pilot script and will serve as executive producer. Veith was nominated for three Emmys writing for Mad Men. The Act co-creator Nick Antosca will also serve as executive producer. Candy will be shopped to networks and streaming services. "I have been wanting to play an anti-heroine for a while now, and have been trying to work with Robin again after Mad Men for even longer, so when she asked me if I wanted to play a housewife from Texas who, some would say, got away with murder, I simply said, ‘Where do I sign?’" Moss said in a statement. "Adding the opportunity to work with Nick after his incredible work on The Act was like taking a delicious dessert and putting 100 cherries on top."
