AMC’s dark comedy Dietland to premiere on June 4

AMC has announced on International Women’s Day that the new wickedly funny satire series Dietland from Marti Noxon (Mad Men), which stars Joy Nash (The Mindy Project) and Julianna Margulies (The Good Wife), is set to premiere on June 4 at 9 pm ET with back-to-back episodes.

The dark comedy unveils one woman’s journey to self-awakening while exploring a multitude of issues faced by women today — including patriarchy, misogyny, rape culture, and unrealistic beauty standards in this extraordinarily timed series. Based on Sarai Walker’s 2015 best-selling, critically acclaimed novel of the same name, Dietland stars Nash as lead Plum Kettle and Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winner Margulies as Kitty Montgomery. Noxon serves as executive producer, writer, showrunner, and directs multiple episodes on the series.

Filmed on location in New York City, the 10-episode series follows Plum Kettle, ghost-writer for the editor of one of New York’s hottest fashion magazines, as she struggles with self-image and sets out on a wildly complicated road to self-acceptance. At the same time, everyone is buzzing over news reports about men, accused of sexual abuse and assault, who are disappearing and meeting untimely, violent deaths.

Plum’s boss, Kitty, is a wildly ambitious magazine editor whose world is thrown into chaos when a feminist terrorist organization starts targeting people in her orbit. Sucked into a terrifying news cycle, Kitty can no longer rely on her old-school media power and must instead play a whole new game of master manipulation where rules no longer apply.

David Madden, president of original programming for AMC, SundanceTV, and AMC Studios said: “Dietland focuses on some of the important issues and conversations happening today and offers a witty and insightful look at the war of the sexes. I’m beyond thrilled to welcome powerhouse executive producer, writer and director Marti Noxon back to the AMC family and can’t wait for audiences to see her passion come to life, notably through the dynamic and nuanced performances from rising star Joy Nash and the incomparable Julianna Margulies.”

Joining Nash and Margulies are series regulars Robin Weigert (Big Little Lies) as Verena Baptist, Adam Rothenberg (Ripper Street) as NYPD detective Dominic, Tamara Tunie (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit) as Julia, Rowena King (Shut Eye) as newscaster Cheryle Crane-Murphy, Will Seefried (The Deuce) as Ben, and newcomers Ricardo Davila as Kitty’s assistant Eladio and Tramel Tillman as Plum’s best friend Steven.
