Debby Ryan’s Insatiable will premiere this August, Netflix has announced.
The dark, twisted revenge comedy, starring Dallas Roberts and Alyssa Milano, sees Ryan play Patty, who has been bullied, ignored, and underestimated for years by those around her because of her weight. But now that she finds herself suddenly thin, Patty is out for payback against anyone who has ever made her feel bad about herself. Bob Armstrong (Dallas Roberts), a disgraced attorney whose true passion is coaching beauty pageant contestants, is the only one who sees Patty’s potential, and takes her under his wing – first as a legal client, and then as a pageant contestant whom he coaches toward becoming the top pageant queen in the country. But Bob and his wife Coralee (Alyssa Milano) have no idea how deep Patty’s rage goes, or how far she will go to exact revenge on anyone who has ever wronged her. Bullies beware: revenge is sweet and if you cross Patty, you’ll be her next treat.
The show, which started out on The CW, is created by Lauren Gussis (co-exec producer on Dexter), who EPs alongside Ryan Seacrest, Nina Wass (Shades of Blue), Andrea Shay, Todd Hoffman, Dennis Kim and Andy Fleming. All 12 episodes land on Friday 10th August worldwide. Here’s the video announcing the release date:
Netflix picks up CW’s Insatiable for original series
12th June 2017
Netflix is increasingly stepping up its original content game, commissioning new projects left, right and centre. Now, it’s even picking up projects from other networks, as it orders a new series, Insatiable, based on a failed pilot at the CW.
The network, which is home to such shows as iZombie, Arrow, Supergirl, Reign and, of course, Riverdale, passed on the project, despite its impressive credentials – it’s created by Dexter’s Lauren Gussis and stars Debby Ryan and Dallas Roberts. Indeed, with the network renewing a hefty 11 existing programmes – including the high-profile Riverdale – and picking up Dynasty and Valor, two of its other 2017 pilots, the CW’s budget was effectively maxed out. With Insatiable reportedly different in tone to anything else on the slate, it’s easy to see how it got the chop.
Described as “darkly comedic” by Deadline, the pilot (produced by Ryan Seacrest Productions and Storied Media Group) is said to have a premium vibe, which makes it equally easy to see why Netflix would show an interest. Written by Gussis, with Andrew Fleming directing the pilot, Insatiable is inspired by real-life Southern lawyer and beauty pageant coach Bill Alverson, following Bob (Dallas), a disgraced civil lawyer-turned-beauty pageant coach, who takes on Patty (Ryan), a vengeful, bullied teenager as his client.
Joining Dallas and Ryan are Christopher Gorham, Erinn Westbrook, Michael Provost, Sarah Colonna, Kimmy Shields, Irene Choi and Alyssa Milano. Gussis is an exec producer on the project, alongside RSP’s Ryan Seacrest, Nina Wass and Andrea Shay of RSP, plus Storied Media’s Todd Hoffman and Dennis Kim.
Netflix has reportedly ordered a full 13-episode season, turning the CW’s pilot into a Netflix original. This is the first scripted series brought to Netflix by recently hired VP of Content, Bela Bajaria, who was former president at Universal TV. It is not, though, the first time such a thing has happened: only a couple of years ago, Amazon picked up CBS’ Sneaky Pete and turned it into an Amazon Studios original, which premiered this year. Netflix and CBS TV Studios, meanwhile, are far from strangers, with the CW’s Riverdale airing on Netflix in the UK and CBS’ new Star Trek series (an exclusive for its streaming platform, CBS All Access, in the US) airing on Netflix everywhere outside of America.
