    Kate McKinnon is set to executive produce and star in the upcoming Hulu limited series The Dropout, which will also be produced by Fox Searchlight in the company’s first television venture.

    Based on the ABC News podcast and 20/20 documentary, McKinnon will portray disgraced entrepreneur Elizabeth Holmes who dropped out of Stanford University to become CEO of the former company Theranos.
    The company was infamous for its false claims that it could test the blood of patients for nearly 200 diseases with a simple finger-prick. Holmes deceived many wealthy investors and she quickly was named the youngest and highest-paid self made billionaire in 2015 before her scheme was exposed. She was later indicted in 2018 on nine counts of wire fraud and two counts of conspiracy.

    Thoughts? The story is definitely fascinating and I am very intrigued to see how well this project will do. Y’all McKinnon is about to be coming for all the awards

    I just listened to this podcast last month and it has the potential to be a really fascinating series. They need to nail the tone, especially with McKinnon as Holmes, because it could easily come off as farcical and not taking the situation as gravely serious as it should be. I’d love to see McKinnon really wow with a dramatic performance that some of her other SNL female counterparts like Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph have shown they are capable of. She certainly has the look down, I just hope the show takes Holmes’ crimes as seriously as they should.

    I actually have a clear vision of McKinnon as Holmes, she really looks alike.
