Hulu has shared the first trailer for The Dropout, an upcoming miniseries centered on Elizabeth Holmes and her failed blood-testing company Theranos.

The trailer follows Holmes, played by Amanda Seyfried, as she drops out of Stanford in order to create Theranos, before showcasing both the company’s soaring success and Holmes’ ultimate demise. After earning the title of youngest and wealthiest self-made billionaire from Forbes in 2015, the disgraced Theranos founder was exposed for fraud that same year.

Elsewhere, the preview reveals several cast members, including Naveen Andrews, who plays Theranos’ former president and chief operating officer Sunny Balwani, as well as Stephen Fry, William H. Macy, Laurie Metcalf and Sam Waterston.

The Dropout is largely based on a podcast of the same moniker, which was created in 2019 by Rebecca Jarvis and ABC Audio. Kate McKinnon was previously set to star as Holmes, though she was replaced by Seyfried after dropping out of the project with no explanation.

The first three episodes of The Dropout will premiere on Hulu on March 3, with new episodes dropping on a weekly basis. Watch the trailer above.

Elsewhere in entertainment, Disney+ greenlights Star Wars: Andor for a second season.
