Aya Cash On The New Hulu Series “The Girl From Plainville,” “You’re The Worst,” Future Plans & More

A SXSW Official Film Selection, The Girl From Plainville was inspired by the true story of Michelle Carter’s unprecedented “texting-suicide” case. Based on the Esquire article of the same name by Jesse Barron, the limited Hulu series explores Carter’s relationship with Conrad Roy III and the events that led to his death and — later — Carter’s conviction on the charge of involuntary manslaughter.

The cast of The Girl From Plainville includes Elle Fanning, Chloë Sevigny, Colton Ryan, Cara Buono, Kai Lennox, Aya Cash and Norbert Leo Butz. Written and executive produced by co-showrunners Liz Hannah (The Post, The Dropout, Mindhunter) and Patrick Macmanus (Dr. Death), the series’ 8 episodes — as set to premiere on March 29, 2022 — were also executive produced by Fanning and Echo Lake’s Brittany Kahan Ward. Consulting producers include Barron and Erin Lee Carr (I Love You, Now Die), while Kelly Funke oversees production duties on behalf of Macmanus’ Littleton Road Productions.

On March 22, 2022, I had the pleasure of speaking with Aya Cash about The Girl From Plainville, her prior on You’re The Worst — including who Henry Rollins’ role was originally supposed to be played by — and future plans for her. More on the Hulu series can be found here, here and here.
