AMC green-lights series based on satiric novel 'Dietland'

AMC says it's green-lighted a new series, "Dietland," based on the darkly satiric novel about a weight-obsessed society.

The show's creator is Marti Noxon, whose credits include "Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce" and "UnReal."

AMC said the show based on Sarai Walker's novel will explore the emphasis on weight and beauty in a "bold, original and funny way."

The main character of the 2015 novel "Dietland" is a 300-pound woman, Plum, who becomes involved with an underground group of radical women.

Noxon told a TV critics' meeting Saturday that the series will be unlike anything else on TV.
