Dr. Kevorkian gained notoriety in the '90s for supporting physician-assisted suicide and claiming personal responsibility for more than 150 deaths. He was eventually convicted of second-degree murder and spent eight years in prison before being released on parole in June 2007. The film will reportedly cover events leading to Kevorkian's first assisted suicide and the media blitz that resulted from his legal battles in defense of a patient's right to die.
