Yesterday, Disney+ revealed the premiere date for the highly anticipated new drama series Dopesick starring Michael Keaton, Peter Sarsgaard, Michael Stuhlbarg, Will Poulter, Kaitlyn Dever and Rosario Dawson. The eight-part original series will premiere exclusively on Disney+ Day, Friday November 12, in Australia.

From executive producer Danny Strong, and starring and executive produced by Michael Keaton, Dopesick examines how one company triggered the worst drug epidemic in American history. The series takes viewers to the epicentre 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 limited series is inspired by the New York Times bestselling book by Beth Macy.

The eight-episode series guest stars include Phillipa Soo and Jake McDorman.

Dopesick is written by Emmy-winner Danny Strong (Empire, Recount, Game Change) and directed by Oscar®-winner Barry Levinson (Paterno, Rain Man). Executive producers for Dopesick include Strong, John Goldwyn (Dexter), Keaton, Levinson, Warren Littlefield (The Handmaid’s Tale, Fargo, The Old Man), Beth Macy (Dopesick) and Karen Rosenfelt (Twilight).
