Frontline

PBS | 10:00 pm

Although many viewers may be suffering from scandal fatigue these days, the new documentary "Opioids, Inc." may still shake some of them up with its account of how a drug company flooded the market with powerful opioids by bribing doctors and committing extensive insurance fraud. Produced in association with the London-based business and economic publication Financial Times, the film reveals how a company called Insys Therapeutics reaped a monetary windfall from a fentanyl-based painkiller that was 50 times stronger than heroin.
