Controversial new drama ‘Mary Kills People’ to premiere Jan. 25

Global / ET Canada

Get ready for a drama unlike anything we’ve seen before when Global premieres Mary Kills People, a new series that tackles the controversial topic of assisted suicide.

In the show, Caroline Dhavernas (Wonderfalls) stars as Dr. Mary Harris, an ER doctor who maintains a sideline within the hospital as an “angel of death,” working outside the boundaries of the law to help terminally ill patients end their lives so they can go out on their own terms. Things take a perilous turn for Mary, however, when a chain of events begin to unspool that could destroy her life, her family and her career.
