The Dropout: Plot
The Dropout is all set to brief out the story of Holmes’ infamous failed healthcare startup Theranos. However, the developers of this series have not taken a breath about the plot of the upcoming show.
As per the sources, it has been found that the series might explore the rise and fall of Holmes. A Stanford dropout who established Theranos, a drug research business that claimed to just need a slight amount of blood for its reportedly innovative diagnostics technology.
Theranos, once a multibillion-dollar company, came crashing down after it was found that the technology claimed did not work, exposing the health of thousands of people to risk. Holmes, who was once regarded as a Silicon Valley genius alongside Steve Jobs, went from being the youngest self-made female billionaire to an infamous suspected scammer in a matter of a few months, as shown in The Dropout.
The Dropout: Trailer
Hulu, the streaming platform, released the first official trailer of the series on February 7, 2022, which offers viewers a glimpse inside Theranos’ growth and fall. Check it here. In the trailer, we witnessed Seyfried’s fake deep voice, which is surprisingly similar to Holmes.
She is seen saying, “What if you could test your blood in your own house, and what if it was not completely awful, but only a drop?” “Together, we are ensuring that everyone in this country has access to healthcare.” This indicates that there is a lot more to come in the plot.
