AMC Orders Dietland Based On Sarai Walker Novel

AMC has greenlit 10-episode revenge fantasy Dietland from Marti Noxon (Mad Men) based on Sarai Walker’s 2015 novel of the same name, which is set against the backdrop of the beauty industry and will explore society’s obsession with weight loss and beauty.

President of AMC Studios, Charlie Collier, says: “Day in and day out, we work to refine our search for unique voices and never-before-seen worlds. It is in that context that we proudly bring Marti Noxon back to AMC for the first time since her work on Mad Men, as the executive producer, writer and showrunner of Dietland,”

“This series, populated by unforgettable characters and unique storytelling approaches, will focus a wickedly entertaining lens on issues as diverse and divisive as dieting, dating, beauty and the many societal expectations that continue to dominate our culture and consciousness.”
