Blood Ties

Blood Ties

Our family members are not always who we think. When Eleonore and Michael Richland lose their parents unexpectedly in a small plane crash, they must choose between honoring their father’s legacy as a world-renowned cardiologist and health care magnate — or risk it all to tell the truth. In the second season, they must grapple with the consequences of their decisions, as well as stumble upon disturbing new revelations about the family business. From Wondery, the makers of “Dirty John” and “Dr. Death,” Blood Ties stars Gillian Jacobs (Community, Love), Josh Gad (Frozen, Avenue 5), Amy Landecker (Transparent), Dominic Monaghan (Lost), and Wayne Knight. New episodes of the second season release every Wednesday.
