Amanda Seyfried IS “The Dropout!” Mesmerizing New Hulu Series About “Inventor” Elizabeth Holmes!

Elizabeth Holmes was a “dropout” – oh, and a billionaire. She invented a device that could perform more than one hundred blood tests immediately – all from a single drop of blood.

Except she didn’t. And this absolutely riveting new HULU series tells her story.

Here’s the trailer:

As they say in the promotion for the series:

“Money. Romance. Tragedy. Deception. Hulu’s limited series “The Dropout,” the story of Elizabeth Holmes (Amanda Seyfried) and Theranos, is an unbelievable tale of ambition and fame gone terribly wrong. How did the world’s youngest self-made female billionaire lose it all in the blink of an eye?”

“The Dropout” stars Amanda Seyfried as Elizabeth Holmes and Naveen Andrews as Sunny Balwani. Seyfried gives the performance of a lifetime, capturing every nuance to this woman, who quoted Yoda constantly, believing in a lie so completely that you pity her – except you can’t, because she defrauded investors and put patient’s lives at risk.

Naveen Andrews, who was also mesmerizing on the TV series “LOST”, shows us the very dark side to Sunny Balwani, who is about to go on trial for the crimes that Holmes has been convicted of already.

The limited series also includes a terrific line up of guest stars like Utkarsh Ambudkar, Kate Burton, Michel Gill, LisaGay Hamilton, William H. Macy, Elizabeth Marvel, Laurie Metcalf, Dylan Minnette, Alan Ruck, Sam Waterston, Michaela Watkins and more.

This is a “must watch!”

My wife Alex and I went immediately back to HBO for their riveting documentary about Holmes as well…see more about it here:

    • Having already seen the documentary, I wasn’t sure either – but it’s a really detailed look at what went on, and the acting and script is terrific! Thanks for reading and commenting, always great to hear from you!


  3. This is fascinating! Every back story is a layer of who you are and why. I have taught some Elizabeth’s.

  4. The true story was fascinating, and this looks like a great recreation of it. I don’t have access to Hulu though.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  5. Very excited to watch this! The trial was up here – so lots of coverage and I saw Tyler Shultz speak at the World Healthcare Congress in 2019.
