Winner and nominee in over 20 international film festival screenplay competitions and labs (including the prestigious Hamptons Screenwriters Lab as an Alfred P. Sloan Foundation script), and set in Boston, Massachusetts, WONDER DRUG is inspired by the true story of the drug DES (diethylstilbestrol), seen as a medical miracle to help women with pregnancy issues and one of the first cash cows for pharmaceutical companies – but which was in fact a toxic, carcinogenic drug and one of the biggest medical disasters in history, affecting millions of people worldwide.












WONDER DRUG scientific advisor P. Harry Jellinck, WONDER DRUG screenwriter Caitlin McCarthy, actress Alysia Reiner, and actor Steve Guttenberg at the 15th Annual Hamptons International Film Festival. WONDER DRUG's live staged reading at this festival was co-sponsored by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, directed by Tom Gilroy, and starred Steve Guttenberg (THREE MEN AND A BABY) and Alysia Reiner (Netflix's "Orange is the New Black").



























In the April 18, 2011 issue of The Boston Globe, WONDER DRUG screenwriter Caitlin McCarthy appeared on the cover and in the feature story about DES.
