Hulu’s upcoming original series Dopesick examines how one company triggered the worst drug epidemic in American history. Dopesick looks at the opioid epidemic from a variety of angles, from the boardrooms of Purdue Pharma, who marketed OxyContin as non-addictive, to a distressed Virginia mining community witnessing the horrors of addiction first-hand.
Based on the book by Beth Macy, Dopesick is executive produced by Danny Strong (Empire) and Michael Keaton, who also stars. Keaton is joined by Peter Sarsgaard, Michael Stuhlbarg, Will Poulter, John Hoogenakker, Kaitlyn Dever, and Rosario Dawson.
The first three episodes of Dopesick premiere on Hulu Oct. 13, with new episodes streaming weekly.
