If you haven’t heard the name Elizabeth Holmes before, you’ve probably been living under a rock (just kidding, but only partially). But, if you don’t have the slightest idea who this person is, there is a new Hulu mini-series that will tell you everything there is to know about her.
The Dropout stars Amanda Seyfried as Holmes, the founder and CEO of Theranos, a company that aims to revolutionize the world of blood testing. The youngest self-made billionaire went from a global sensation to losing it all in just the blink of an eye.
To give a little background info, Holmes created a needle-free rapid test that uses a small drop of blood to diagnose patients. However, her invention didn’t work at all. Holmes’s company later collapsed, and she was indicted on nine counts of wire fraud by a federal grand jury.
Just from my knowledge of the scandal, this was a show I had to check out. But the real question is, was it worth the watch?
