US streaming service Peacock has released a trailer for their upcoming limited series Dr Death, a true-crime drama starring Joshua Jackson, Christian Slater & Alec Baldwin, based on the shocking real-life events surrounding a Texas surgeon…

Based on Wondery’s hit podcast, the 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 defenceless among us.

The drama stars Joshua Jackson (‘Little Fires Everywhere’, ‘The Affair’) as the titular character, along with Alec Baldwin (‘A Star is Born’, ’30 Rock’, ‘Saturday Night Live’), Christian Slater (‘Dirty John’, ‘Mr. Robot’), Grace Gummer (‘Mr. Robot’, ‘The Hot Zone’), Anna Sophia Robb (‘The Act’, ‘Little Fires Everywhere’) and Carrie Preston (‘Claws’, ‘The Good Wife’).

Produced by UCP, a division of Universal Studio Group, ‘Dr. Death’ is executive produced by Patrick Macmanus (‘The Girl from Plainville’) via his Littleton Road Productions banner, and under his overall deal with UCP, a division of Universal Studio Group. Macmanus also serves as showrunner. Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal, Steve Tisch and Taylor Latham also executive produce via Escape Artists, as well as Hernan Lopez and Marshall Lewy of Wondery.

Dr Death‘ premieres this Summer on Peacock in the USA, and will air on STARZPLAY UK on this side of the pond. If you want to keep track of this series you can add it via our Never Miss system, and you’ll be notified when it gets a UK premiere date.
