AMC Planning “Dietland” TV series

AMC has won a bidding war to land “Buffy” writer Marti Noxon’s TV adaptation of Sarai Walker’s novel “Dietland” with plans to pick it up to series for airing next year.

Part coming-of-age story and part revenge fantasy, the story 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.

The Skydance Television-produced project is said to have a hefty penalty attached should it not move to series. Noxon will pen the script, exec produce and serve as showrunner.

David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, Maria Grasso, Marcy Ross, Bonnie Curtis and Julie Lynn will all executive produce.
