Synopsis: 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. With deadly results.
Bio: Robin Veith started her career on the staff of “Mad Men,” where she wrote five episodes of the show’s first three seasons, with three of her scripts receiving Emmy nominations, and one a Writers Guild nomination. She also earned three Writers Guild Awards (two for Outstanding Drama Series and one for Outstanding New Series) as well as a Peabody Award. Her credits include “Lights Out,” “Law & Order: SVU,” “True Blood,” “The Expanse,” and “The Act.” She is currently developing and producing under an overall deal with UCP.
