The teaser gives a snapshot of Holmes’ journey that began with dropping out of Stanford to build her biotech empire, Theranos. However, a guilty verdict in court last month proved the ‘rising star’ defrauded investors, including a laundry list of business titans, celebrities, and even politicians.

“The story of Elizabeth Holmes and Theranos is an unbelievable tale of ambition and fame gone terribly wrong.”, Hulu stated. “How did the world’s youngest self-made female billionaire lose it all in the blink of an eye?”

The Dropout stars Amanda Seyfriend as Elizabeth Holmes and Naveen Andrews as Sunny Balwani, her partner in crime. The limited series also features an impressive list of guest stars, including Stephen Fry, William H. Macy, Laurie Metcalf and Sam Waterson.

The show comes to the streaming service via Searchlight Television and 20th Century Television, with the project being Searchlight’s first foray into the world of TV.

The Dropout is scheduled to hit Hulu on March 3rd.
