Dr. Death Season 2: Edgar Ramirez takes lead role in Peacock series

The Wondery podcast Dr. Death covered the case of surgeon Christopher Duntsch for his first season, hematologist/oncologist Farid Fata with his second season, and surgeon Paolo Macchiarini for his third season. The Peacock anthology series inspired by the podcast also told the story of Duntsch with its first season, in which the doomed surgeon was played by Joshua Jackson. (Read our review HERE.) Second season of Peacock’s Dr. The death series goes on to the story of Paolo Macchiarini – and Deadline reports that Edgar Ramirez (The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story) has signed on to play the role.

In Dr. Death Season 2, we’ll find out Macchiarini is a visionary surgeon whose innovative organ transplants captivated the global medical community. When his fiancee, Benita Alexander, and a few suspicious colleagues launch investigations into his botched operations, cracks begin to appear in Paolo’s charming persona. When Benita learns the lengths to which Paolo will go to protect his secrets, a group of doctors halfway across the world make their own shocking discoveries that call into question everything about him.

Like the first season, this season will consist of eight episodes. Management tasks are divided equally between Jennifer Morrison and Laura Belsey, with Morrison directing the first four episodes and Belsey directing the second half of the season.

Patrick Macmanus served as showrunner, writer and executive producer of Dr. Death season 1. He remains on board for season 2, producing through his company Littleton Road Productions, but fellow executive producer Ashley Michel Hoban takes the lead as showrunner and writer.
