Plot Synopsis

Hosted and executive produced by attorney Alex Ferrer, WHISTLEBLOWER is a one-hour true crime series that explores the real-life David vs. Goliath stories of heroic people who put everything on the line in order to expose illegal and often dangerous wrongdoing when major corporations rip off U.S. taxpayers. Each hour introduces cases in which ordinary people step up to do the extraordinary by risking their careers, their families, and even their lives to ensure others are not harmed or killed by unchecked, unethical corporate greed. In the series opener, "Blow the Whistle, Change the World," two dentists are alarmed by the unsafe and fraudulent practices that they say were standard at a pediatric dental chain that provides services in underserved communities. Fearing that it would lead to overtreatment, overbilling and putting children at risk, they decide to take matters into their own hands. Also, a whistleblower takes on a pharmaceutical giant, accusing the company of using illicit bribes, expensive vacations and sumptuous dinners to gain illegal access to patient medical records and coerce doctors to prescribe the company's high-priced meds.
