(R)Age Before Beauty: Dark Comedy “Insatiable” is Coming to Netflix
Former “Suite Life of Zack & Cody” star Debby Ryan is out for revenge in the new Netflix Original called “Insatiable”, a dark, twisted revenge comedy series created by Lauren Gussis (who’s also the co-exec producer on Dexter). Watch the announcement video by clicking the play button above.
In “Insatiable”, Patty (Debby Ryan) has been bullied, ignored, and underestimated 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.
Enter Bob Armstrong (Dallas Roberts), a disgraced attorney whose true passion is coaching beauty pageant contestants. Bob 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.
“Insatiable” has been acquired by Netflix last year after its pilot missed a series order at the CW. Joining Debby Ryan in the cast is Alyssa Milano Dallas Roberts, Christopher Gorham, Erinn Westbrook, Michael Provost, Kimmy Shields, Irene Choi, and Sarah Colonna.
The series will have 12 episodes, and is slated to premier on August 10, 2018.
