The complete trailer for the brand new drama series The Girl from Plainville, starring Elle Fanning, was released today by Stan.

The series will launch on Stan on Wednesday, March 30th, the same day as in the United States.

The Girl From Plainville is based on Jesse Barron’s Esquire article of the same name and is inspired by Michelle Carter’s true storey. The limited series investigates Carter’s connection with Conrad Roy III and the events that led to his murder and, later, her conviction of involuntary manslaughter.

The series looks at how technology, social media, and pop culture affect young people’s mental health and how it can be destructive. Elle Fanning plays Michelle Carter, Chloe Sevigny plays Lynn Roy, Colton Ryan plays Conrad ‘Coco’ Roy III, Cara Buono plays Gail Carter, Kai Lennox plays David Carter, and Norbert Leo Butz plays Conrad ‘Co’ Roy II.

The series is written and executive produced by co-showrunners Liz Hannah (THE POST, The DropoutMindhunter) and Patrick Macmanus (Dr. Death), and also executive produced by Fanning and Echo Lake’s Brittany Kahan Ward. Consulting producers include Barron and Erin Lee Carr (I Love You, Now Die). Kelly Funke oversees for Macmanus’ Littleton Road Productions, under his overall deal with UCP, a division of Universal Studio Group. Emmy-winning screenwriter and director Lisa Cholodenko (Ep. 1, 3), Zetna Fuentes (Ep. 2), Pippa Bianco (Ep. 4, 5), Liz Hannah (Ep. 6, 7) and Daniel Minahan (Ep. 8) direct the series.

The Girl from Plainville premieres 30 March, same day as the U.S. and only on Stan.
