Plot Synopsis

Hosted and executive produced by plastic surgeon Dr. Terry Dubrow, LICENSE TO KILL is a one-hour docuseries that chronicles the harrowing accounts of patients put into jeopardy by medical professionals' insidious use of their expertise. Told from the perspective of victims, families, colleagues and law enforcement, each episode of "License to Kill" exposes what happens when the hands that should heal are used to cause harm on patients at the most vulnerable times. Whether these doctors spiraled out of control over money, jealousy, power or from mental breakdown, viewers will get a look inside these killers' minds who lost sight of their Hippocratic Oath and used their practice for evil, leaving their patients sick, injured, paralyzed or even dead. The series recounts how authorities were finally able to stop these medical professionals' malpractice, putting an end to the madness before someone else got hurt or killed. In the series opener, "Deadly God Complex," Dr. Christopher Duntsch, a Dallas spine surgeon's God complex puts patients at risk and it's up to the fellow medical staff to blow the whistle before more innocent people are victimized.

LICENSE TO KILL returned for its second season on Saturday, August 8, 2020 at 7pm ET/PT on Oxygen. In the season opener, "Killer Surgeon," an arrogant cosmetic surgeon operating out of a basement permanently scars and kills patients, then shocks detectives by attempting to murder a loved one.
On Saturday, October 24, 2020 at 6pm ET/PT, Oxygen premiered "Nursing Home Nightmare," the Season 2 finale of LICENSE TO KILL. When 12 patients die over the course of 13 days at a nursing home in Florida, investigators discover a dangerous nurse.
