The Girl from Plainville First Look at Stan Drama



Stan has revealed a first look at Elle Fanning’s eagerly anticipated drama series The Girl from Plainville, which will premiere on Wednesday, March 30th, the same day as the US and exclusively on Stan.

The true story of Michelle Carter’s unique “texting-suicide” case inspired The Girl From Plainville. The limited series, based on Jesse Barron’s Esquire article of the same name, delves into Carter’s connection with Conrad Roy III and the events that led to his murder and, later, her conviction for involuntary manslaughter.

The series looks at how technology, social media, and pop culture affect young people’s mental health and how it can be harmful.

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 Dropout, Mindhunter) 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 2022, same day as the U.S. and only on Stan.
