Pharmacide

In Development (2019)

6 Episode TV Series

 

It’s everywhere. Across the web, down at the local pharmacy and in distribution chains worldwide, counterfeit medicines from the mundane to the sophisticated are sold illicitly – and often with deadly consequences. Jakarta-based DEA agent Nick Porter’s obsession to uncover a global trafficking network takes us into a true-to-life underworld where greed drives a two hundred billion dollar business, and the victims are all too often the innocent. A contemporary Southeast Asia-set international thriller, Pharmacide reveals a global traffickers' paradise, where political imperatives lead authorities to turn a blind eye to this murder by medicine – and only one man holds the key to bring it all down.
