London, UK

TV Series

In this investigative medical documentary series we look at the lives and deaths of the biggest names in the entertainment history. Through a combination of interviews with family and friends, archive footage and dramatic reconstructions, we tell these stories and unpick the- sometimes mysterious- circumstances around their deaths.

In this episode, we investigate the death of Dana Plato, star of Eighties American sitcom, 'Diff'rent Strokes. Dana Plato died May 8 in Moore, Oklahoma, as she slept in a mobile home parked outside the home of her fiancee's parents. She was 34. Police first said the actress' death appeared to be an accident, but then changed the verdict to suicide.

Her tragic, early death marked the end of years of various addictions for the young mother. After Dana left the global success of 'Diff'rent Strokes' she was never really able to get her life back on track again and turned to alcohol, cocaine and valium to deal with her demons. By her own words 'I was bound to fall prey to one chemical dependency or another as a result of my addictive personality.' Dana was a fragile, much loved soul and we hope to capture this as we dramatically portray, the last days of her life and ask the question ''what really killed Dana Plato?"
