The Great star has signed on for her second Hulu series, The Girl From Plainville, inspired by the controversial real-life story of Carter. In 2017, Carter was convicted of involuntary manslaughter for sending text messages, at age 17, encouraging her 18-year-old boyfriend Conrad Roy to die by suicide. The case was already the subject of the 2019 HBO documentary I Love You, Now Die. The Girl From Plainville will be based on an Esquire article by Jesse Barron. The series will explore Carter and Roy's relationship and the events leading up to his death. The Post's Liz Hannah will serve as co-showrunner along with Dr. Death's Patrick Macmanus.
