There is a similar show that's coming up in a week on Hulu called The Act-- it's a seasonal anthology that will dramatize one sensational true-crime story with each season's worth of it. The first season of 8 episodes will be about Gypsy Rose Blanchard and her mother Dee Dee (specifically, how Dee Dee had Munchausen by proxy, and acted like her daughter Gypsy had myriad diseases like paraplegia, heart murmur, etc., and as such got donations aplenty from many charitable organizations). Only problem was, Gypsy had none of those diseases in reality, but her mother acted like she did.A show like The Handmaid's Tale can hold its own against anything made in any era. It may not be to your taste, and yes it's dark, but we live in dark times.
Here's the latest trailer for it; it has Joey King as Gypsy, and Patricia Arquette as Dee Dee, et al., and I'm seriously thinking about switching to Hulu from Netflix if this show is as good as I think it'll be:
