Dietland - Coming-of-Age/Revenge Fantasy Drama Ordered to Series by AMC

AMC is moving forward with Dietland.

After landing the drama following a multiple network bidding war in October, AMC on Saturday handed out a 10-episode series order to Marti Noxon's adaptation of Sarai Walker's 2015 novel. The series, a co-production between Skydance Television and AMC Studios, has not yet been cast and will premiere in 2018. (The cable network home to The Walking Dead also unveiled an ambitious scripted development slate featuring seven new dramas from the likes of Rainn Wilson, Greg Nicotero and Chris Hardwick. Read about those here.)

Put in development in October as part of AMC's script-to-series development process, the cabler opened a writer's room last year as the drama had been a front-runner to go to series. (Producers went with AMC and, sources say, turned down straight-to-series offers last year following a competitive process that also included HBO, Netflix and TV Land.)

Dietland is the first project to come from Noxon's seven-figure, three-year deal with Skydance.

Dietland is described as part coming-of-age story and part revenge fantasy. The series is set against the backdrop of the beauty industry and explores society's obsession with weight loss and beauty in a bold, original and funny fashion.

Noxon will pen the script, executive produce and serve as showrunner. Skydance's David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Marcy Ross also will exec produce alongside Noxon's Tiny Pyro topper Maria Grasso as well as Bonnie Curtis and Julie Lynn of Mockingbird Pictures and Jackie Hoyt.
