Hulu Greenlights Limited Series The Dropout, Starring Kate McKinnon as Theranos CEO Elizabeth Holmes
Today, the company confirmed an order for The Dropout, a limited series executive produced and starring Kate McKinnon, inspired by the ABC News podcast on the rise and fall of Elizabeth Holmes and her company, Theranos. The series will explore what caused the world’s youngest self-made female billionaire, once heralded as “the next Steve Jobs,” to lose everything in the blink of an eye. Along with McKinnon, executive producers on the limited series include the producing team behind the ABC News podcast, host and Chief Business, Technology and Economics Correspondent for ABC News Rebecca Jarvis, Taylor Dunn and Victoria Thompson. The series comes to Hulu from Fox Searchlight Television and is the studio’s first project since announcing the creation of the television division in April 2018.Source: Hulu

MY EARLIEST COMIC INSPIRATION
My dad would quote [Saturday Night Live’s stop-motion character] Mr. Bill and say, “Oooh n0000.” He would also quote the land-shark. I just thought those were American phrases people said. SNL was part of the DNA of our house, for sure.

In elementary school I started doing impressions of my teachers and found that my classmates were laughing. I thought, “Ooh, this feels good. I’ll try to do this for as long as I can.”
