Exclusive Video Interview: Pablo Schreiber and Timothy Simons on Playing Devoted Husbands in Hulu’s ‘Candy’

Check out more of our video interviews on our YouTube channel.

In 1980, one seemingly happy and popular housewife, Candy Montgomery (Jessica Biel), committed a shocking crime. Hulu’s new event series Candy, which will unspool over the course of five consecutive nights in May, looks at the idyllic life of the churchgoing mother and her friend Betty Gore (Melanie Lynskey).

Key to the story are the two men most prominently in the lives of these women: Betty’s husband Allan (Pablo Schreiber) and Candy’s husband Pat (Timothy Simons). I had the chance to speak with Schreiber and Simons, both known for their rich TV work on series like Orange is the New Black and Veep, respectively, about approaching this dramatic material and what they really think of the people they play (and their hairstyles).

You can watch the video above, and read below for an official summary and where to watch.

Series summary:

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.
