Lies, deceit, family issues, and murder. Follow along with the true story of the relationship between Gypsy Blanchard and her Mother Dee Dee. Gypsy longs for independence from her overprotective mother who has convinced her that she has many disabilities and ailments as a direct consequence of Munchhausen syndrome by proxy in order to evoke sympathy or even an attempt to receive financial aid. Follow along as Gypsy struggles and gasps for her freedom and watch how with help from her boyfriend Nick Godejohn, she murdered her mother Dee Dee Blanchard after years of being mentally and physically abused. One of the show’s creators Michelle Dean said that "It’s emotionally intense to make a television show under any circumstances. But this one has a relationship to reality, plus the story itself is so wrenching. I know that the show is intense, but in a way that is the truest thing that I can say about what happened here: that it wasn’t fun, it wasn’t a cool, crazy time where people were just scammers of some kind. It was a deep, emotional experience, and when it fell apart everyone was left feeling like they were in the aftermath of a bomb.” This new anthology series will leave you on the edge of your seat, scratching you head wondering what is around the next corner.
