Hulu’s newest miniseries explores the rise and fall of former Theranos CEO Elizabeth Holmes.

Elizabeth Holmes dropped out of Stanford University to start a healthcare company and went on to be named the youngest and wealthiest self-made female billionaire in America by Forbes — so where did it all go wrong? Hulu’s new limited series, The Dropout, explores the unbelievably true story of Holmes and her company, Theranos, and how the seemingly successful billionaire lost everything.

Inspired by the hit ABC News podcast of the same name, The Dropout stars Amanda Seyfried and Naveen Andrews and charts the rise and fall of Holmes’ healthcare-focused tech startup across eight episodes. The series dropped its first three episodes today on Thursday, March 3, exclusively on Hulu.

Hulu announced the twisted true crime series back in April 2019, with Saturday Night Live star Kate McKinnon set to executive produce and star as Holmes in the show. However, due to scheduling conflicts and her commitment to playing Carole Baskin in Peacock’s upcoming true story-inspired series, Joe vs Carole, the actress passed the disgraced-billionaire baton to Seyfried. The Dropout features a supporting cast that includes Utkarsh Ambudkar, Kate Burton, Michel Gill, LisaGay Hamilton, William H. Macy, Elizabeth Marvel, Laurie Metcalf, Dylan Minnette and more.
