AMC has 10 episodes of a drama series “Dietland” from Marti Noxon (“Mad Men,” “UnReal”) and based on Sarai Walker’s 2015 novel of the same name. Set against the backdrop of the beauty industry and described as a part-character drama and part-revenge fantasy, “Dietland” will explore society’s obsession with weight loss and beauty. The series, a co-production between AMC and Skydance Television, is the first to come from the deal that Noxon set at Skydance for her Tiny Pyro banner.
Noxon will write and exec produce with Skydance’s David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Marcy Ross, Tiny Pyro’s Maria Grasso as well as Bonnie Curtis and Julie Lynn of Mockingbird Pictures.
“Dietland” will debut on an undisclosed date and time in 2018
