Netflix Picks Up Comedy ‘Insatiable’

Thirteen Initial Episodes Ordered

Netflix has ordered 13 episodes of sitcom “Insatiable,” which was originally passed over by The CW. Described as darkly comedic and quirky, the pilot revolves around a “disgraced and dissatisfied” lawyer (Dallas Roberts) who becomes a beauty pageant coach for some reason and must deal with a “vengeful, bullied teenager” played by Debby Ryan. Written by Lauren Gussis (“Dexter,” “Once Upon a Time”), with Andrew Fleming directing the pilot, “Insatiable” is inspired by real-life Southern lawyer and top beauty pageant coach Bill Alverson.

The cast also includes Christopher Gorham, Erinn Westbrook, Michael Provost, Sarah Colonna, Kimmy Shields, Irene Choi and Alyssa Milano in a major recurring role.
