The series, which is centered on the Michelle Carter texting-suicide case, will start production later this year.
Cholodenko directed the first three episodes of Toni Collette and Merritt Weaver’s limited Netflix drama series Unbelievable and previously directed the HBO miniseries Olive Kitteridge, which won her an Outstanding Directing Emmy. Her 2010 feature film, The Kids Are All Right, won the Golden Globe for Best Comedy and was nominated for four Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay.
The Girl from Plainville was handed a straight-to-series order in August and comes from The Post writer Liz Hannah and Dr. Death exec producer Patrick Macmanus. Produced by UCP, it is based on Jesse Barron’s 2017 true-crime Esquire article about the case. Fanning plays Carter.
