The billionaire was criticized for non-accurate blood-testing technology which led to a high-profile fraud investigation. Her boyfriend became part of the probe as well due to his affiliation with the company.

The miniseries will premiere on Hulu Network from March 3 next year with three episodes. The remaining episode will be released on weekly basis.
It is all about a person losing fame, respect and determination in the blink of an eye when things go wrong. The themes of the upcoming series include deception, tragedy, romance and wealth as well.

Elizabeth Meriwether, Liz Heldens, Liz Hannah, Katherine Pope, Rebecca Jarvis, Taylor Dunn, Victoria Thompson, Michael Showalter and Jordana Mollick are its executive producers.
