About the Show

THE ACT is a seasonal anthology series that tells startling, stranger-than-fiction true crime stories.

The first season 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.

Doting mother Dee Dee Blanchard and her sweet daughter Gypsy arrive in a new neighborhood, where Gypsy feels lonely due to a barrage of medical issues and eager to make friends. But as the series progresses, which is based on a true story, Gypsy starts to question the lies her mother tells her — especially about how old she really is and if she’s really sick.

When Does Season 1 of The Act premiere?

The Act will be available on Hulu starting Wednesday, March 20th at 12:01am.
