Published

on

Hulu‘s TV series Dopesick is all about America’s Opioid crisis. The show has a stellar team behind it! This 8-episode limited series stars Michael Keaton and is directed by Barry Levinson. The show is run by Emmy winner Danny Strong and produced by Warren Littlefield. This series is based on Beth Marcy’s journalist book Dopesick: Dealers, Doctors and the Drug Company that Addicted America. The series is said to release in 2021 by FOX 21 Television Studios.

Dopesick

The series focuses on the trial of a Virginia mining town similar to the book. Michael Keaton is cast in the role of Samuel Finnix, an old-school doctor. Finnix is described as ‘an old-school doctor who approaches his practice with kindness and compassion, but finds himself embroiled in Big Pharma’s deadly secret.’  The series will also portray families affected by the company.

What Can we expect from Dopesick?

Here’s what Bert Salke, President of FOX 21 Television Studios said about the series:

“Although we were sharply aware of and empathetic to the horrifying pain caused by the Opioid crisis for millions in this country, we were blown away when Warren Littlefield showed us Beth Marcy’s book Dopesick. Consequently, Danny Strong had been crafting his own telling of the opiate epidemic and in typical Danny form, it was mesmerizing. The fact that Warren and Danny are collaborating on this is a studio’s dream. Together with Barry Levinson and Michael Keaton, we have every reason to believe this important story will be one of the tv events of the coming year.” 

Danny Strong also spoke about the show. Here’s what he said:

“I’m so thrilled to tell this story with a company as bold and daring as Hulu. The opioid crisis is one of the most important stories of our time and I’m honoured to not only pay tribute to its victims but to shine a light on the heroes that fought back. Laws were broken and many lies were told. The system failed us and Dopesick is going to show everyone how it all happened.”

Based on their statements, it seems like Dopesick is going to be real and raw! Hopefully, it doesn’t stray away much from the story in the book. What are your thoughts on the show? Are you excited to watch the series? Let us know in the comments!

I am a passionate writer just trying to figure out life and myself. Writing has always been a way of expressing myself, hence most of my work is pretty raw and unprocessed. I try my best to be unapologetic about what I write. This internship in ByProduct Ventures has allowed me to push myself and see what all I am capable of. I have always pictured the future me as someone very creative and this opportunity takes me one step towards that. Apart from writing, I also love expressing myself by painting or drawing. All I want from life is to keep learning, falling and rising and to live every moment like it is my last! (aditigautam1705@gmail.com)
