If you loved Dirty John, gird your loins.

A TV adaptation of the Dr Death podcast is on its way and the trailer is an absolute doozy.

If you haven’t listened to the podcast, I urge you to check it out, but if nah, it’s the story of Dr Christopher Duntsch, a Texas surgeon who recklessly and sickeningly botched dozens of operations on patient’s spines – some were maimed, some were killed.

And yeah, it’s a true story, he’s currently in prison serving a life sentence.

The actual Christopher Duntsch.

Joshua Jackson plays Duntsch in the new series, and Christian Slater and Alec Baldwin play the doctors who expose him.
