The Dropout | Preview (BBC One)

Dramatic true story behind the headline-grabbing rise and fall, starring Mary Lynn Rajskub, Michel Gill, Elizabeth Marvel, William H Macy, Amanda Seyfried, Laurie Metcaff and Bill Irwin.

2002. An intense Elizabeth Holmes goes to Stanford University, determined to become a billionaire. She just needs a miracle concept – even if it is a mirage. Fifteen years later, she and her business are disgraced.

2006. While Elizabeth’s team labour over a blood-tester prototype, she struggles to attract funding. Encouraged to be more hard-nosed, she makes some dubious decisions.

The Dropout begins Tuesday 19th March at 10:40pm on BBC One.
