“I’ve heard stories of girls who grow up happy and well adjusted. This is not that story,” says Insatiable star Debby Ryan as she takes a sledgehammer to a grocery store aisle in Netflix’s date announcement trailer.
In the “dark, twisted revenge comedy,” Ryan plays Patty, who for years 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.
The series also stars Dallas Roberts as Bob Armstrong, a disgraced attorney whose true passion is coaching beauty pageant contestants. He 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.
The cast also includes Christopher Gorham, Erinn Westbrook, Michael Provost, Kimmy Shields, Irene Choi and Sarah Colonna.
Insatiable is created by Lauren Gussis (Dexter), who serves as an executive producer along with Ryan Seacrest, Nina Wass (Shades of Blue), Andrea Shay, Todd Hoffman, Dennis Kim and Andy Fleming.
It launches August 10 on Netflix.
