Candy Montgomery (Biel) is a 1980s housewife and mother who did everything right—good husband, two kids, nice house, even the careful planning and execution of transgressions—but when the pressure of conformity builds within her, her actions scream for just a bit of freedom. With deadly results.

The series stars Biel, Timothy Simons, Melanie Lynskey, Pablo Schreiber, and Raúl Esparza. Biel stars as Candy Montgomery, Simons stars as Pat Montgomery, Lynskey stars as Betty Gore, Schreiber stars as Alan Gore, and Esparza stars as Don Crowder. Some big names and big talent fill in the cast list for Candy. Simons is recognizable from his role on Veep and his current voice talents as Raccoon on FOX's Housebroken. Lynskey has a connection to another show we've discussed on the site, Yellowjackets. And the powerhouse we've loved from Law & Order: Special Victims Unit in Rafael Barba.

Nick Antosca (The Act, Brand New Cherry Flavor) will serve as executive producer under his banner Eat the Cat along with Alex Hedlund.
