Now that filming is complete, what does the storyline look like? When is the potential release date? Here’s everything we know so far about HBO Max’s new drama miniseries Love and Death.

The miniseries will be set in the early 1980s and follows the beautiful and serene life of a couple who are local church attendees in Wylie, Texas. However, life turns completely upside down for them when Candy Montgomery murders her friend Betty Gore by striking her with a wood-splitting ax.

In the late 1970s, Candy and Betty’s husband were having an extra-marital affair, which their respective spouses weren’t aware of. On the day of Gore’s killing, her husband was out of town. He requested the neighbors to go and check on her, and after forcing their way into Betty’s home, they found her corpse, which was stabbed 41 times. Candy automatically becomes the prime suspect in this murder case since she was the last person to have seen Betty alive, as per her statement.
