John Boyega (STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS) stars as Jack Locke, a mysterious conman with a vendetta who infiltrates NextCorp, a Silicon Valley body-hacking startup run by enigmatic CEO Max Fuller, played by Emmy winner Darren Criss (AMERICAN CRIME STORY: THE ASSASSINATION OF GIANNI VERSACE). Nextcorp has secretly been developing a revolutionary new mind app that promises to amplify the human brain in incredible ways. "Shut-Eye," promises to change the world by eliminating its users’ need to sleep, but when participants of the human trials begin dying off, the program is shut down.

As Jack goes toe to toe with Max and his fractured psyche, he finds himself on the run for his life in a race to stop a dark plot seeking to radically advance humankind to its next stage of evolution.
If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.
We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
