In Hulu’s Dopesick, Michael Keaton plays Sam Finnix as the kind of family doctor anyone would want taking care of them.
Folksy and smart, he cares enough to stop by an elderly patient’s home after work to make sure she’s taken her medication. He’s still treating adults he delivered as babies in a small Virginia mining town.
But eventually, Finnix winds up in front of a grand jury, ashen and shell-shocked. When a prosecutor asks how his patients reacted to the drug OxyContin, he offers a chilling reply.
“I can’t believe how many of them are dead now.”
