It’s been a long long time since Dawson’s Creek and yes that’s Joshua Jackson, grey hair. However I wouldn’t say that to him in Starzplay upcoming limited series Dr Death. The streaming channel have unveiled the UK Trailer that’s spine chilling.
The 90’s teen icon plays a charismatic neurosurgeon who comes under the suspicion of his fellow surgeons. The series is based Wondery true-crime podcast series which saw patients go to his surgery for straightforward operations, only to leave maimed or dead.
Based on the hit U.S.podcast from Wondery, “Dr. Death” is based on 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 Shugart (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.
The series also stars Grace Gummer , AnnaSophia Robb, with Christian Slater and Alec Baldwin.
Dr Death limited series will premier on StarzPlay on 12th September exclusively in UK, Ireland Belgium, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, and Latin America.
