Dr. Death: trailer

Édgar Ramírez stars in the true crime drama of a charming surgeon responsible for many patients perishing by his hand.

A trailer has dropped for Season Two of anthology true crime drama Dr. Death to screen on Stan, same day as the U.S., in December.

The second season tackles a new subject, and a new doctor starring Édgar Ramírez (Wolf Like Me) and Mandy Moore (This Is UsA Walk To Remember).

​The brand new season of Dr. Death is based on the Wondery podcast and follows “Miracle Man” Paolo Macchiarini (Édgar Ramírez), a charming surgeon renowned for his innovative operations. When investigative journalist Benita Alexander (Mandy Moore) approaches him for a story, the line between personal and professional begins to blur, changing her life forever. ​

Seen through the eyes of the woman who loves him, Benita, and his medical peers, Paolo’s perfection unravels. As she learns how far Paolo will go to protect his secrets, a group of doctors halfway across the world make shocking discoveries of their own that call everything about Paolo into question. A story of lies, manipulation, heartbreak, and betrayal, the whistleblowers peel back the layers of Paolo’s deception until they realise vulnerable patients put their faith in not a ‘Miracle Man’, but a ‘Dr. Death’. In the end, most patients perish by his hand, suffocating on the decaying plastic windpipes he placed inside them.

Dr. Death Season 2, stars Ramírez and Moore joined by Luke Kirby (No Man of God, Take This Waltz), Ashley Madekwe (The Strays), Gustaf Hammarsten (Bruno). Ashley Michel Hoban serves as showrunner, writer and executive producer, along side Patrick Macmanus, Todd Black (Escape Artists), Jason Blumenthal (Escape Artists), Steve Tisch (Escape Artists), Taylor Latham (Escape Artists), Aaron Hart (Wondery), Hernan Lopez (Wondery) and Marshall Lewy (Wondery) and Linda Gase as executive producers. Episodes 1-4 are directed by Jennifer Morrison and episodes 5-8 are directed by Laura Besley. Dr. Death season 2 is produced by UCP, a division of Universal Studio Group.

  1. It would be interesting if a third season looks at a medical practioner who provides lethal prescriptions to help terminal patients pass away on their own terms. That would make the subject sympathetic, while still being a criminal. I am pretty sure there are real-life examples of this.
