Disney has announced that the upcoming drama limited series “Dopesick”, is going to be released on Disney+ internationally as a Star Original in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and other regions, on Friday 12th November.
This new limited series 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. Defying all the odds, heroes will emerge in an intense and thrilling ride to take down the craven corporate forces behind this national crisis and their allies.
The eight-episode series stars Michael Keaton, Peter Sarsgaard, Michael Stuhlbarg, Will Poulter, John Hoogenakker, with Kaitlyn Dever and Rosario Dawson. Guest stars include Phillipa Soo and Jake McDorman.
Disney is celebrating Disney+ Day around the world on Friday 12th November, where subscribers to Disney+ will be treated to new content releases across the service’s iconic brands, Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic, and Star in international markets, along with a special presentation on Disney+ for fans with sneak peeks into what’s to come.
“Dopesick” will be released on Hulu in the United States on October 13th, with new episodes released weekly. So Disney+ subscribers will be about a month behind the US release schedule, unless Disney releases more episodes at once.
