Featured New Hulu Original Series: October 2021

Our favorite Hulu series picks are:


Based on a true story and inspired by Beth Macy’s New York Times bestselling book, “Dopesick” examines how one company triggered the worst drug epidemic in American history.
Hulu’s newest limited series Dopesick, starring Golden Globe-winner Michael Keaton, is a compelling look at the epicenter of America’s struggle with opioid addiction. From executive producers Danny Strong (Empire) and Warren Littlefield (The Handmaid’s Tale), Dopesick is an unsparing yet deeply human portrait of families impacted by the opioid crisis and their intersecting stories. From a distressed Virginia mining community to the hallways of the DEA, this limited series tells a captivating story that taps into a powerful and timely cultural conversation.

Chang and a diverse cast of characters dive headfirst into what lies ahead, including everything from burger-flipping robots, to lab-grown fish, to insect farms, to artificial intelligence calling all the shots.
