Dr. Death features acclaimed talent including Joshua Jackson, Grace Gummer, Christian Slater, and Alec Baldwin. The bone-chilling series is based on the terrifying true story of Dr. Christopher Duntsch, a young and charismatic, ostensibly brilliant doctor in the Texas medical community. Several patients entered his operating room for complex but routine spinal surgeries and were left maimed, debilitated, or dead. As his victims pile up, two fellow physicians set out to stop him.

With a 7.7 IMDB rating the series has received rave reviews globally:
- With excellent performances and a procedural tone that interrogates an entire system instead of just one man, “Dr. Death” is a solid drama about a man who thought he could play God but never realized he wasn’t talented or smart enough to do so – Roger ebert.com
- Though it keeps viewers in the waiting room a little too long, Dr. Death is a horrifying tale of medical malpractice centered around Joshua Jackson’s sufficiently unsettling performance – Rotten Tomatoes
- Dr. Death is clearly made for the legion of true crime devotees. It is made to scare the living s—t out of you about going to the doctor – San Francisco Chronicle
- As actors of Baldwin and Slater’s caliber, in particular, may indicate, Dr. Death is quite the charisma-fest – love them or hate them, there is no denying these are serious actors with enormous screen presence – ABC radio
