The series follows the events leading up to the death of Conrad Roy, Michelle's boyfriend, who died by suicide in 2014. Michelle was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter for encouraging Conrad to take his own life through text messages and was sentenced to 15 months in jail.

The miniseries stars Elle Fanning as Michelle Carter and is based on the Esquire article "The Girl from Plainville" by Jesse Barron. The series premiered on Hulu in August 2020 and received critical acclaim for its sensitive portrayal of a difficult and controversial case.

Saving Hope

2011
Drama
It seems like NBC decided not to give up with paranormal things in 2012. After the cancelation of Awake and realizing that Smash is not going to be a great hit, they decided to launch brand new supernatural-paranormal medical drama with far not first two-word gerund/noun title Saving Hope. But please, don't expect it to be a kind of chimera with mixed DNA of Saving Grace and Rising Hope. Not even close. To describe what Saving Hope is. Let's begin with the "complication" of the plot: two nice people are snuggling inside the wedding cab which is suddenly gets struck by the car. We see as the wedding couple acts absolutely professionally saving the life of the driver by using only medical equipment they have: a pair of common scissors and a tampon. This act of help reveals the newlyweds as the good doctors exactly that they are. The groom is Dr. Charles Harris (Michael Shanks) and the bride is Alex Reid (Erica Durance). However, the situation is getting worse after Alex realizes what a whack in the head Charles got during the accident. Shortly the traumatic brain injury sends Dr. Charles Harris to the hospital bed with the coma diagnosis instead of the honeymoon. As a side effect he receives a supernatural power to walk unseen and unheard between his former colleagues and patients. During his trips he immerses himself deep into the emotions of dying people and doctors trying to save them. He attempts to help both of them using his paranormal gift (which reminds us the CBS' Gifted Man). Charles also trying to get in touch with his ex-fiancee Alex, but all of these attempts fail frightening her almost to death. On the other hand Alex is trying to struggle for saving Charles' life, while he is in coma, but day after the day, she realizes the unfortunate futility of her attempts.
