The Act stars Academy Award winner Patricia Arquette, Joey King, Chloë Sevigny and Anna Sophia Robb and is based on the 2016 BuzzFeed article Dee Dee Wanted Her Daughter To Be Sick, Gypsy Wanted Her Mom Murdered by Michelle Dean.
The Act follows Gypsy Blanchard (King), a girl trying to escape the toxic relationship she has with her overprotective mother Dee Dee (Arquette). Her quest for independence opens a Pandora’s box of secrets - one that ultimately leads to murder.
From UCP (Universal Content Productions), Nick Antosca (Channel Zero) and Michelle Dean serve as co-creators and executive producers, while Greg Shephard and Britton Rizzio also serve as executive producers.
