The Drop Out: The Rise and Con of Elizabeth Holmes Episode Summary
In a special “20/20” event, ABC News chief business, technology and economics correspondent Rebecca Jarvis reports on the latest chapter in the downfall of Elizabeth Holmes and her blood-testing company Theranos, once valued at $9 billion. “20/20” dives into the former Silicon Valley star’s trial and conviction for fraud and the most recent developments in Holmes’ life, including her relationship with a wealthy hotel heir and the birth of her first child. It also looks ahead to the upcoming trial of her former boyfriend and business partner Sunny Balwani, whom Holmes accused of abuse, all of which he denies. “20/20” features new interviews with Vicki Behringer, the sketch artist in the courtroom every day; Mehrl Ellsworth, a patient who received incorrect results from a Theranos lab test and testified at trial; juror Michael Kew; Phyllis Gardner, a Stanford professor who crossed paths with Holmes before she started Theranos and was skeptical of Holmes’ ideas; Blythe Barger, former content producer at Theranos; and lawyers who closely followed the case.
Additionally, the two-hour event contains behind-the-scenes access to the new Hulu Original limited series “The Dropout,” from Searchlight Television and Disney Television Studios’ 20th Television — part of ABC News’ parent company, Disney — and based on ABC Audio’s No. 1-ranked podcast of the same name hosted by Jarvis. “20/20” includes on-set interviews with stars Amanda Seyfried and Naveen Andrews, who discuss what it was like to portray Holmes and Balwani. “20/20” airs Friday, March 4 (9:01-11:00 p.m. EST), on ABC, next day on Hulu.
