First Look At Patricia Arquette In Hulu’s True Crime Drama ‘The Act’

Oscar-winner Patricia Arquette was practically unrecognizable as a frumpy prison guard in the recent Showtime miniseries “Escape from Dannemora”, and she once again disappears into her latest character for another project based on a real-life crime.

In Hulu’s “The Act”, Arquette portrays Dee Dee Blanchard, a seemingly doting mother of an apparently handicapped young daughter, Gypsy Rose (Joey King). The family situation, however, takes a deadly turn when some startling truths emerge.

“‘The Act’ is a seasonal anthology series that tells startling, stranger-than-fiction true crime stories,” states Hulu’s synopsis for the upcoming series.

“The first season follows Gypsy Blanchard, a girl trying to escape the toxic relationship she has with her overprotective mother,” the synopsis continues. “Her quest for independence opens a Pandora’s box of secrets, one that ultimately leads to murder.”

In addition to Arquette and King, the cast also includes AnnaSophia Robb (“The Carrie Diaries”) and Chloe Sevigny (“Big Love”).
