With summer rapidly approaching, we’re one step closer to Amazon’s latest exclusive acquisition, Dietland – and a new teaser trailer gives us a taste of what to expect.
Based on Sarai Walker’s 2015 best-selling novel of the same name, the series follows Plum Kettle’s (Joy Nash – The Mindy Project, Twin Peaks) 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 one of New York’s hottest fashion magazines, edited by Kitty Montgomery (Golden Globe winner Julianna Margulies, The Good Wife, ER), as she struggles with self-image and embarks on the complicated road to self-acceptance.
The series premieres on Amazon Prime Video in the UK on Tuesday 5th June. Here’s the video:
