Netflix's "Painkiller" tells the story of how one family built a business that helped launch the opioid crisis, and how they evaded real consequences for a long time even amid ongoing legal struggles. The limited series, which premiered on 10 Aug., is based on Patrick Radden Keefe's 2017 New Yorker article "The Family That Built an Empire of Pain" and Barry Meier's book "Pain Killer: An Empire of Deceit and the Origin of America's Opioid Epidemic," which both chronicle how Purdue Pharma — led by the Sackler family — obscured the truth about their product OxyContin.
"Painkiller" is a scripted series, but it sticks closely to real-life events as it traces the rise and fall of the Sackler family's empire. Most of its main characters are fictional, including Edie Flowers (Uzo Aduba), a lawyer from Virginia who, in the series, plays a key role in investigating the Sacklers' empire. Another one of its main plotlines follows Glen Kryger, a fictional mechanic who gets hooked on opioids after an injury, and a third centres West Duchovny as a fictional Purdue Pharma salesperson named Shannon Shaeffer.
