Based mostly on Wondery’s hit podcast, DR. DEATH is impressed by the terrifying true story of Dr. Christopher Duntsch (Joshua Jackson), a rising star within the Dallas medical group. Younger, charismatic and ostensibly good, Dr. Duntsch was constructing a flourishing neurosurgery apply when every part abruptly modified. Sufferers entered his working room for advanced however routine spinal surgical procedures and left completely maimed or lifeless. As victims piled up, two fellow physicians, neurosurgeon Robert Henderson (Alec Baldwin) and vascular surgeon Randall Kirby (Christian Slater), in addition to Dallas prosecutor Michelle Shughart (AnnaSophia Robb), got down to cease him. DR. DEATH explores the twisted thoughts of Dr. Duntsch and the failures of the system designed to guard essentially the most defenseless amongst us.
