Zetna Fuentes is headed to Plainville…
The Emmy-nominated Latina director will direct two episodes of Hulu’s limited series The Girl From Plainville, starring Elle Fanning, Colton Ryan, Chloë Sevigny and Norbert Leo Butz.
Fuentes joins a roster of directors for the project that includes series co-creator Liz Hannah, Pippa Bianco and Lisa Cholodenko.
The series hails from Hannah and Dr. Death exec producer Patrick Macmanus and UCP, a division of Universal Studio Group.
Written by Hannah and Macmanus and produced by UCP, The Girl From Plainville stars Fanning as Michelle Carter and is inspired by the true story of her controversial “texting suicide” case. Based off the Esquire article by Jesse Barron, the limited series will explore Carter’s relationship with Conrad “Coco” Roy III (Ryan) and the events that led to his death and, later, her controversial conviction of involuntary manslaughter.
Fuentes is an NAACP Image Award and three-time Daytime Emmy nominated television and theater director.
