From Executive Producer Danny Strong and starring and executive produced by Michael Keaton, “Dopesick” examines how one company triggered the worst drug epidemic in American history. The series takes viewers to the epicenter of America’s struggle with opioid addiction, from the boardrooms of Big Pharma, to a distressed Virginia mining community, to the hallways of the DEA. Watch Dopesick Oct 13, only on Hulu

This is out.

Reviews are very positive with a few saying its decent but only for performances from Keaton and Devers.

Wrapped this up and it was real good. Although the story telling structure was a little hard to follow at times, even though they usually say what year it was, I think that was the only way to go here.

Nice to see Rosario Dawson get a good role, and Kaitlyn Devers did a nice job.

Stuhlbarg was creepy as hell as the head Sackler guy. Will Poulter also top notch as the pharma sales rep.

Several other supporting players were also very good in this.

Keaton was terrific. This has probably one of the best all-around casts Ive ever seen in a TV show.

highly recommended. Only 8 episodes.

I thought this might be a bit boring with courtroom stuff but the way they jump around makes it all work well.

My girlfriend and I watched the first episode on Sunday. Seems really good. Think were going to watch another later tonight. Keaton is in top form. I kind of thought it may be boring, but the first episode was pretty interesting.

It really takes off late in/after episode 3.
