Dopesick - Peter Sarsgaard Cast in Hulu Limited Series


Peter Sarsgaard is set as a series regular opposite Michael Keaton in Dopesick, an eight-episode limited series based on Beth Macy’s bestselling book. Barry Levinson is set to direct the project which hails from Empire co-creator/exec producer Danny Strong, The Handmaid’s Tale executive producer Warren Littlefield and Touchstone Television.

Sarsgaard will play Rick Mountcastle, an Assistant US Attorney prosecuting the Purdue Pharma case.

Written by Strong and slated to premiere in 2021, Dopesick is described as an ambitious, harrowing, and compelling look into the epicenter of America’s struggle with Opioid addiction. It takes viewers from a distressed Virginia mining community, to the hallways of the DEA, and to the opulence of “one percenter” Big Pharma Manhattan. The unsparing yet deeply human portraits of the various affected families and their intersecting stories hold up a mirror to where America is right now, while shining a hopeful light on the heroes battling the worst drug epidemic in American history.
