The Control Group

Full Cast Thriller Series

Set at the State Mental Hospital of New Canaan in 1962, The Control Group follows the director of a mental ward as he employs increasingly experimental and irresponsible methods to probe the mind of an uncooperative mental patient, being encouraged to do so by a mysterious funding group. But as Dr. Hayes wears down Karen's resistance through drug, sleep, and more unconventional therapies, he is exposed to a larger conspiracy that threatens the security of his other patients, as well as the loyal nurse who begins to question Hayes's ethical judgment. A work of fiction inspired by actual events, The Control Group dramatizes the CIA's funding of mind-control experiments through a shadow organization, as well as its more nefarious covert drug operations.
