Airdate: Love & Death

Elizabeth Olsen and Jesse Plemons star in a new HBO drama from David E. Kelley.

HBO miniseries Love & Death, starring Elizabeth Olsen and Jesse Plemons, will premiere in late April.

Based on a true story, the seven-episode drama, written by David E. Kelley and directed by Lesli Linka Glatter, centres around Candy and Pat Montgomery and Betty and Allan Gore – two churchgoing couples enjoying their smalltown Texas life… until an extramarital affair leads somebody to pick up an axe.

The cast includes Lily Rabe, Patrick Fugit, Keir Gilchrist, Elizabeth Marvel, Tom Pelphrey and Krysten Ritter. The show was an official selection of the 2023 SXSW Film & TV Festival.

Co-produced by Lionsgate. Executive producers: David E. Kelley (who is writing the series) through David E. Kelley Productions; Nicole Kidman and Per Saari through Blossom Films; Lesli Linka Glatter (who directs the first four and final episodes); Scott Brown and Megan Creydt through Texas Monthly; Matthew Tinker; Michael Klick and Helen Verno. The limited series is inspired by the book “Evidence of Love: A True Story of Passion and Death in the Suburbs” and a collection of articles from Texas Monthly (“Love & Death in Silicon Prairie,” Part I & II).

Triple episode premiere Thursday April 27 on Binge / Foxtel On Demand, 8.30pm on FOX Showcase.
