The darkly comedic new series Dietland will premiere exclusively in the UK on Prime Video on 5th June – just one day after its launch in the US.
With Emmy Award-nominee Marti Noxon (Mad Men, UnREAL) as executive producer, Dietland stars Joy Nash (The Mindy Project, Twin Peaks) as Plum Kettle, and Golden Globe® and Emmy® Award-winner Julianna Margulies (The Good Wife, ER) as Kitty Montgomery.
Based on Sarai Walker’s 2015 best-selling, critically-acclaimed novel of the same name, the series follows Plum Kettle’s journey to self-awakening while exploring a multitude of issues faced by women today – including patriarchy, misogyny, rape culture and unrealistic beauty standards.
The ten episodes look into the life of Plum, a ghost-writer for the editor of one of New York’s hottest fashion magazines, as she struggles with self-image and embarks on the complicated road to self-acceptance.
“Dietland is a riveting series –and the timing couldn’t be more relevant;” said Jay Marine, VP Prime Video Europe.
“We’re excited about offering our customers this brilliant series exclusively, alongside other shows that put strong women at their core, such as The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and The Bold Type.”
Dietland also stars 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, Erin Darke, (The Marvelous Mrs Maisel) as Leeta, Rowena King (Shut Eye) as newscaster Cheryl Crane-Murphy, Will Seefried (The Deuce) as Ben and newbies Ricardo Davila as Kitty’s assistant Eladio and Tramell Tillman as Plum’s best friend Steven.
