The first teaser trailer for ‘The Act’ has been released and this anthology docu-series will examine the troubled relationship between Dee Dee Blanchard and her daughter Gypsy Rose.
Dee Dee appeared to the world as a model parent who took care of her wheelchair-bound, terminally ill daughter Gyspy Rose. According to Dee Dee, her daughter had suffered from leukemia, asthma, muscular dystrophy, and several other chronic conditions.
She also managed to persuade those closest to them and even health care professionals that Gypsy Rose had the mental capacity of a 7-year-old due to brain damage she suffered as a result of her premature birth.
In 2015, when Dee Dee was murdered, it was revealed that not only was Gypsy Rose involved in the killing but also that she was never ill at all.
Academy Award-winning Patricia Arquette will star as Dee Dee and Joey King as Gypsy Rose in this complex and tragic story based on true crime events.
The Act begins on Hulu – coming March 20, 2019.
