Amanda Seyfried as Elizabeth Holmes in ‘The Dropout.’

This week’s Nose will be able to tell this story at a conference wearing flip-flops.

The Dropout is an eight-part Hulu Original limited series that tells the story of Elizabeth Holmes and Theranos. It’s based on the ABC News podcast and stars Amanda Seyfried.

And Inventing Anna is a nine-part Netflix Original limited series created by Shonda Rhimes that tells the story of Anna Sorokin. It’s inspired by Jessica Pressler’s New York magazine story “Maybe She Had So Much Money She Just Lost Track of It,” and it stars Anna Chlumsky and Julia Garner.

Some other stuff that happened this week, give or take:


  • Taneisha Duggan: Associate producer at Octopus Theatricals
  • Mercy Quaye: Founder and principal consultant for The Narrative Project
  • Bill Yousman: Professor of Media Studies at Sacred Heart University
