Coming off her Golden Globe winning performance as Tilly in Escape From Dannemora, Patricia Arquette joins another true crime drama, and may be even more unhinged in this one. Also, one Freeform’s first major buzzworthy show (back from its ABC Family days) gets a spin-off a couple years after the mysterious “A” was retired. Also, BUBLÉ!!
The Act [Hulu]
Hulu’s take on Gypsy Rose Blanchard, the young woman who was abused by her mother and then set up her boyfriend to murder the woman, stars Joey King, Patricia Arquette, and Chloe Sevigny.
