The Act is a seasonal anthology series that tells startling, stranger-than-fiction true crime stories. Season One follows Gypsy Blanchard (Joey King), a girl trying to escape the toxic relationship she has with her overprotective mother, Dee Dee (Patricia Arquette). Her quest for independence opens a Pandora’s box of secrets, one that ultimately leads to murder.
The series stars Patricia Arquette (Dee Dee Blanchard), Joey King (Gypsy Blanchard), Chloë Sevigny (Mel), AnnaSophia Robb (Lacey) and Calum Worthy (Nick).
Nick Antosca and Michelle Dean co-created the series based on Dean’s original Buzzfeed article and serve as executive producers alongside Greg Shephard and Britton Rizzio. The Act is produced by Universal Content Productions.
