Los Angeles: Emmy-winner Carrie Preston, best known for her work on “Claws” and “The Good Fight”, is set to star in the Peacock series “Dr Death”. Based on the Wondery podcast of the same name, the show stars “Dawson’s Creek” alum Joshua Jackson in the titular role. “Dr Death” follows the true story of Dr Christopher Duntsch (Jackson), a neurosurgeon, whose malpractice resulted in the death and maiming of multiple patients in Dallas.
As victims piled up, two fellow physicians, neurosurgeon Robert Henderson (Alec Baldwin) and vascular surgeon Randall Kirby (Christian Slater), set out to stop him. Duntsch was accused of maiming four patients and killing two more, and was found guilty of maiming one and sentenced to life in prison in 2017.
