Dietland premieres

on

Based on the novel of the same name by Sarai Walker, the series is an incisive, biting satire that challenges your preconceptions about feminism and body type.

The show will be about Plum Kettle,  a soft-spoken, introverted and self-identified fat woman who feels trapped both by her body and her life and is saving money for gastric bypass surgery, as she ghostwrites for an ice queen magazine editor, Kitty, while struggling to accept herself in a world that too often tells her she’s too big to fit in or find lasting happiness.

Plum is then recruited by a secretly seething coworker, Julia, who runs the magazine’s beauty closet and, secretly, a resistance movement against the fashion industry, the media, and general misogyny.

Mondays on AMC.
