How is this for a Cast? Joshua Jackson, AnnaSophia Robb, Christian Slater and Alec Baldwin star in new Series DR. DEATH, based on the eponymous Podcast and based on a true story.
The new Peacock Original series is inspired by the terrifying true story of Dr. Christopher Duntsch (Joshua Jackson), a rising star in the Dallas medical community. Young, charismatic and ostensibly brilliant, Dr. Duntsch was building a flourishing neurosurgery practice when everything suddenly changed. Patients entered his operating room for complex but routine spinal surgeries and left permanently maimed or dead. As victims piled up, two fellow physicians, neurosurgeon Robert Henderson (Alec Baldwin) and vascular surgeon Randall Kirby (Christian Slater), as well as Dallas prosecutor Michelle Shughart (AnnaSophia Robb), set out to stop him. Dr. Death explores the twisted mind of Dr. Duntsch and the failures of the system designed to protect the most defenseless among us.
DR. DEATH premieres Sunday, September 12, 2021 at 9 p.m. ET on Showcase.
