Based on the popular podcast of the same name, Dr. Death tells the “terrifying true story” of Dr. Christopher Duntsch (Jackson), a rising star in the Dallas medical community. “Young, charismatic and ostensibly brilliant, Dr. Duntsch was building a flourishing neurosurgery practice when everything suddenly changed,” per the official synopsis. “Patients entered his operating room for complex but routine spinal surgeries and left permanently maimed or dead. As victims piled up, two fellow physicians, neurosurgeon Robert Henderson (Alec Baldwin) and vascular surgeon Randall Kirby (Christian Slater), set out to stop him.” Preston will play Dr. Duntsch’s defense attorney, Robbie McClung.
In addition to her standout role as lawyer Elsbeth Tascioni on The Good Wife and its spinoff The Good Fight, Preston currently co-stars on TNT’s Claws. Her other TV credits include Person of Interest and True Blood.
