“Join the Revolution” is the tagline for AMC’s dark comedy Dietland, starring Joy Nash (The Mindy Project, Twin Peaks as Plum Kettle, a ghost writer for the editor (Julianna Margulies, The Good Wife, ER) of one of New York’s hottest fashion magazines.
Struggling with her self image and fed up with how she’s being treated by her boss and society, Plum sets out on a wildly complicated road to self awakening. At the same time, everyone is buzzing over the news that men accused of sexual abuse and assault are disappearing and meeting untimely, violent deaths.
Plum finds herself split between a sisterhood that may be responsible for the attack, and another which preaches female empowerment. She straddles these two groups, trying to make sense of the changing world and her part in it.
From Marti Noxon (Mad Men, UnREAL), AMC describes Dietland as equal parts revenge fantasy and heartfelt journey to self acceptance as the series explores many issues faced by women today such as patriarchy, misogyny, rape culture and unrealistic beauty standards.
Dietland premieres with two back-to-back episodes on June 4 at 9 p.m.
