Peter Sarsgaard Joining Michael Keaton in Hulu Limited Series DOPESICK

Read Time:1 Minute, 7 Second


Peter Sarsgaard has joined the cast of the Hulu limited series Dopesick along with Michael Keaton, who is set to star. The eight episode series is based on the bestselling novel by Beth Macy about a compassionate school doctor who finds himself involved in a corporate scheme that perpetuates America’s opioid addiction crisis. Danny Strong, writer of the Hunger Games films and creator of Empire, adapted the screenplay with Macy, and Barry Levinson (Good Morning, Vietnam, Rain Man, Sleepers) is directing.

Here’s the synopsis:

Dopesick is described as an ambitious, harrowing and compelling look into the epicenter of America’s struggle with opioid addiction. It takes viewers from a distressed Virginia mining community to the hallways of the DEA and to the opulence of “one percenter” Big Pharma Manhattan. The unsparing yet deeply human portraits of the various affected families and their intersecting stories hold up a mirror to where America is right now, while shining a hopeful light on the heroes battling the worst drug epidemic in American history.

Deadline reports that “Sarsgaard will play Rick Mountcastle, an Assistant U.S. Attorney prosecuting the Purdue Pharma case.”

This sounds like a heavy and important drama, and I am definitely interested in checking it out. Dopesick is set to hit Hulu in 2021.
