It’s the latest series that strives to convince viewers there’s more to the Incriminated White Female than headlines tell. In Michelle Carter's case, that's somewhat true.
Debuting March 29, the Hulu series stars Fanning as Michelle Carter, who encouraged her boyfriend to take his own life.
Carter was 17 when she convinced Conrad Roy III to stay in his car as it filled with carbon monoxide.
"You always say you're gonna do it but you never do," she texted her boyfriend before his suicide. "I just want to make sure tonight is the real thing."
“This is an extremely important issue,” her lawyer told The Boston Herald.
Carter, who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in 2017 in the death of Conrad Roy, had been allowed to remain free amid her appeal.
Carter was ordered Thursday to serve 15 months behind bars for pushing Conrad Roy to kill himself in 2014.
Much like Michelle Carter, Knox was once cast as a "femme fatale" in a high-profile case.
