At this point, the opioid crisis has been examined in just about every way in a variety of films. However, the upcoming Hulu series Dopesick has one thing those didn’t have; Michael Keaton, who knows a thing or two about starring in projects about America’s worst scandals.
Dopesick is based on Beth Macy’s bestselling book about the worst drug epidemic in history and the pharmaceutical company that set it off. The series, which is directed by Barry Levinson from a Danny Strong script, takes you into the boardrooms of Big Pharma to the coal mines of Virginia and the hallways of the DEA.
The cast surrounding Keaton is top notch and includes Will Poulter, Kaitlyn Dever, Rosario Dawson, Peter Sarsgaard, Michael Stuhlbarg, John Hoogenakker and Phillipa Soo.
Dopesick debuts on Hulu on October 13th.
