TVLine Items: Candy First Look, Comer's New HBO Role and More

Hulu is giving us a taste of Candy: A new teaser has been released for the Jessica Biel-led limited series, which you can watch above.

Based on a true story, Candy stars Biel as Candy Montgomery, a picture-perfect Texas housewife in the 1980s who’s done everything right. But in the teaser, we see that Candy’s friendship with a fellow housewife leads to bloodshed. “When the pressure of conformity builds within her, her actions scream for just a bit of freedom,” the official description warns. “With deadly results.”
