Brian Wilson: child prodigy, musical genius and deeply tortured soul. He was the driving force behind the iconic band The Beach Boys. But behind the fame and gold records is the story of a man suffering from drug addiction, alcohol abuse and mental illness. Desperately in need of help, Wilson’s family enlisted the aid of radical psychologist Eugene Landy - a doctor with an impressive client list…and unfulfilled aspirations of working in the music business. Landy ultimately ingratiated himself into both Wilson’s personal and professional life. Did the person entrusted with a Wilson’s mental health blatantly disregard the professional line between Doctor and Patient? When does therapy turn into mind-control? How did their relationship spiral into psychological abuse, mind games and virtual imprisonment of the rock legend? And finally, how did this doctor manage to weave his web around this very troubled musician? Show Less

About Dr. Feelgood

We trust Doctors with our lives – to heal us when we’re sick and guide us on a path towards healthy living.  But what happens when the person you’ve entrusted with your well being is doing more harm than good?  Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, Anna Nicole Smith and many more lived whirlwind lives in public eye – adored by millions.  For those around them, it was easy to get sucked into the non-stop celebrity lifestyle – and sometimes that even included their doctors.

Dr. Feelgood tells the shocking true stories of the symbiotic relationships between celebrities and their doctors whose drug prescriptions or procedures led to controversy, mystery, and ultimately tragedy for their notable clients.  Can a doctor remain objective when immersed in the world of their celebrity clients?  And where does the responsibility lie: with the user, or the doctor who put the drugs in there hands?
