The Dropout – the new Disney+ drama based on the true story of tech faker and Theranos CEO Elizabeth Holmes – premieres this Thursday, 3rd March. Loved Inventing Anna? The Dropout has your name written all over it.
The first three episodes of The Dropout premiere on Disney+ in the UK and Hulu in the US. Hulu offers new users a 30-day free trial (opens in new tab).
Money, romance, tragedy, deception – The Dropout is the story of Elizabeth Holmes (Amanda Seyfried) and Theranos, an unbelievable tale of Silicon Valley ambition and fame gone horribly wrong. How did the world’s youngest self-made billionaire bluff her way to the top – and then lose it all in the blink of an eye?
The Dropout features an all-star cast including Stephen Fry as Ian Gibbons, a British biochemist who is one of the few people who know that Holmes' pioneering blood testing machine, Edison, doesn't actually work. Naveen Andrews (Lost) plays Sunny Balwani, Holmes' boyfriend and Theranos COO, while William H. Macy is Richard Fuisz, the American inventor who eventually helps to expose the lie.
The Dropout premieres with three episodes on 3rd March. Fans in the US can watch free with Hulu's 30-day free trial (opens in new tab). Follow our guide to watch The Dropout free from where you are...
