Candy explores the real-life story of Montgomery (Biel), a Texas housewife who killed her friend Betty Gore (Melanie Lynskey) with an axe in 1980.

The trailer shows how Montgomery's affair with Gore's husband, Allan (Pablo Schreiber), leads to fatal results.

"Candy Montgomery is a 1980 housewife and mother who did everything right -- good husband, two kids, nice house, even the careful planning and execution of transgressions -- but when the pressure of conformity builds within her, her actions scream for just a bit of freedom. Until someone tells her to shush. With deadly results," an official description reads.

Timothy Simons and Raúl Esparza also star.

Robin Veith wrote the pilot script and will executive produce with Biel, Nick Antosca, Alex Hedlund, Michelle Purple and Michael Uppendahl.

Candy will mark Biel's first TV role since the Facebook Watch series Limetown. She also starred in the first season of the USA Network series The Sinner.
