‘Dr. Death’: Stephen Frears To Direct Jamie Dornan, Alec Baldwin & Christian Slater In Peacock Limited Series
Exclusive: Oscar-nominated and Emmy-winning British director Stephen Frears is set to direct the first two episodes of Peacock’s limited series Dr. Death, starring Jamie Dornan, Alec Baldwin and Christian Slater.
