Patrick Fugit (Outcast, First Man) has been cast as Pat Montgomery in the upcoming HBO limited series Love and Death alongside previously announced Elizabeth Olsen, playing Candy Montgomery, and Jesse Plemons, playing Allan Gore.

The series will be based on the book Evidence of Love: A True Story of Passion and Death in the Suburbs by John Bloom and Jim Atkinson and a collection of articles from Texas Monthly entitled “Love and Death In Silicon Valley, Part I & II” about the brutal murder of Betty Gore at the hands of Candy Montgomery in 1980.

The team behind Big Little Lies and The Undoing, David E. Kelley and Nicole Kidman, along with Leslie Linka Glatter will produce with Lionsgate TV. Glatter will also direct the series.

This series will surely scratch a true crime junkies itch as it explores the brutal murder of Betty Gore, who was found with 41 axe wounds shortly after Candy Montgomery and Allan Gore ended their affair with one another. Candy was the last to see Betty alive and finds herself to be the prime suspect in her murder.

No details on production or a release date have been revealed, but the limited series will air on HBO Max.
