This past week HBO Max release the official trailer and premiere date for the upcoming Max Original series, Love and Death starring Elizabeth Olsen (WandaVision, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame). This riveting drama, written by David E. Kelley and directed by Lesli Linka Glatter, tells the true story of 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 seven-episode Max Original limited series Love and Death 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) and debuts with three episodes on Thursday, April 27, followed by one episode weekly through May 25. The show is also an official selection of the 2023 SXSW Film & TV Festival. Love and Death stars Elizabeth Olsen, Jesse Plemons, Lily Rabe, Patrick Fugit, Krysten Ritter, Tom Pelphrey, Keir Gilchrist, and Elizabeth Marvel.
The Max Original is co-produced by Lionsgate. Executive producers: David E. Kelley (who writes 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.
