Elle Fanning to Play Michelle Carter in Hulu Series About Texting Suicide Case

Elle Fanning will be starring in the upcoming Hulu series The Girl From Plainville, which is inspired by the true story of Michelle Carter and her controversial “texting-suicide” case.

Based off of the Esquire article of the same name by Jesse Barron, the limited series will explore Carter’s relationship with Conrad Roy III and the events that led to his death and, later, her controversial conviction of involuntary manslaughter.

Elle will serve as an executive producer on the project alongside writers and showrunners Liz Hannah (The Post) and Patrick Macmanus (Dr. Death).

This is Elle‘s second series for Hulu following The Great, which premiered earlier this year. That show was renewed for a second season last month.

Check out the fun video that Elle and her older sister Dakota Fanning posted the other day!
