Jessica Biel is entering into the sneakers of considered one of true crime's most infamous killers within the first trailer for Hulu's “Sweet.”
Biel stars within the sequence as Sweet Montgomery, a seemingly regular housewife in small city Wylie, Tex., who was convicted in 1980 for the brutal axe homicide of her neighbor Betty Gore, performed within the present by Melanie Lynskey.
The teaser trailer reveals Biel rework into Sweet, with curly hair and enormous rimmed-glasses. Footage of her going about her day by day life in suburbia is juxtaposed with narration from her trial, as a lawyer performed by Raúl Esparza (“Hannibal”) questions her about her relationship with Betty.
“I had no indignant emotions in direction of her if that's what the query is,” Biel says within the trailer. “We have been…mates.”
Along with Biel, Lynskey and Esparza, “Sweet” can even star Timothy Simmons (“Veep”) as Sweet's husband Pat Montgomery and Pablo Schreiber (“Halo”) as Betty's husband Alan Gore. The sequence was created by Robin Veith, who beforehand wrote for the Hulu true crime sequence “The Act,' who writes 4 episodes of the sequence. Veith govt produces alongside Biel, Nick Antosca, Alex Hedlund, Michelle Purple and Michael Uppendahl.
“Sweet” is considered one of two competing miniseries based mostly on the Sweet Montgomery homicide case set to premiere this 12 months. The opposite is “Love and Loss of life,” an HBO Max unique sequence created by David E. Kelley that stars Elizabeth Olsen as Montgomery and lily Rabe as Gore. The discharge date for “Love and Loss of life” has but to be introduced.
“Sweet” will launch as a five-part occasion. After the primary episode's premiere on Monday, Might 9, Hulu will drop a brand new episode of the sequence every week evening, culminating within the finale on Might 13. Watch the total teaser beneath.
