If like me you are looking forward to the new HBO Theranos documentary that explores Elizabeth Holmes and the story behind Theranos. The company infamous for its false claims for a blood testing machine that only required very small amounts of blood. Are sure to enjoy this new extended teaser trailer to whet your appetite for the HBO Theranos documentary that will be premiering later this week on March 18th, 2019.

“The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley” has been directed by Going Clear’s Alex Gibney and offers viewers
an in-depth look at the rise and fall of Theranos, shining new light on Elizabeth Holmes’ company using “insider footage”.

“Academy Award winner Alex Gibney (Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, HBO’s Emmy-winning Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief) directs a documentary investigating the rise and fall of Theranos, the one-time multibillion-dollar healthcare company founded by Elizabeth Holmes.

In 2004, Elizabeth Holmes dropped out of Stanford to start a company that was going to revolutionize healthcare. In 2014, Theranos was valued at $9 billion, making Holmes, who was touted as “the next Steve Jobs,” the youngest self-made female billionaire in the world. Just two years later, Theranos was cited as a “massive fraud” by the SEC, and its value was less than zero.”
