Netflix has officially announced the release of the limited series Painkiller. All six episodes will begin streaming August 10th.

Along with the release date, Netflix has released the series synopsis:

A fictionalized retelling of events, PAINKILLER is a scripted limited series that explores some of the origins and aftermath of the opioid crisis in America, highlighting the stories of the perpetrators, victims, and truth-seekers whose lives are forever altered by the invention of OxyContin. An examination of crime, accountability, and the systems that have repeatedly failed hundreds of thousands of Americans, PAINKILLER is based on the book PAIN KILLER by Barry Meier and the New Yorker Magazine article ‘The Family That Built the Empire of Pain’ by Patrick Radden Keefe.

The series also stars Matthew Broderick, Uzo Aduba, Dina Shihabi, West Duchovny, and John Rothman.
