HBO Max limited-series, Love and Death, starring Elizabeth Olsen (WandaVision, Martha Marcy May Marlene), will begin shooting in Georgetown, Texas on 25 February.

Produced by Lionsgate, filming is expected to take place through to 5 March at various locations downtown including the Williamson County Courthouse, with filming already under way in Kyle, Texas.

The true-crime series, directed by Lesli Linka Glatter, is inspired by the book Evidence of Love: A True Story of Passion and Death in the Suburbs and a collection of articles from Texas Monthly (Love & Death In Silicon Prairie, Part I & II).

It centres on a pair of church-going couples, enjoying the small-town family life in Texas until Candy Montgomery (Olsen) kills her friend Betty Gore with an axe. 

David E. Kelley (The Undoing, Big Little Lies), who adapted the screenplay, executive produces through his banner David E. Kelley Productions, alongside Nicole Kidman and Per Saari through Blossom Films.  

Sarah Aubrey, head of original content, HBO Max said: “This is a gripping story about the frustrations and desires of two women in a small town that culminates in a terrible act of violence. We are thrilled to be partnering with David, Lesli, Nicole, and Per and incredibly fortunate to have Elizabeth at the center of our story to bring out all the layers of Candy that make this story so unforgettable.”
