AMC has released the official trailer for "Dietland," a new dark comedy series that stars Joy Nash (Twin Peaks, The Mindy Project) as Plum Kettle, an aspiring ghostwriter with body issues, who gets hired to pen an advice column for one of New York's hottest fashion magazines, which is operated by an intimidating editor-in-chief (played by three-time Emmy-winner Julianna Margulies, of "The Good Wife").

Based on the acclaimed debut novel by Sarai Walker, "Dietland" seems to be best described as a concoction of "The Devil Wears Prada" and "Ugly Betty" with a bit of John Waters and "Fight Club" as there's a subplot concerning a mysterious feminist group that is secretly targeting men.

Executive produced by "UnREAL" creator Marti Noxon, who is also producing the upcoming Amy Adams HBO series "Sharp Objects," the ten-episode series also co-stars Tamara Tunie (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit), Erin Darke (Good Girls Revolt), and Robin Weigert (Deadwood).

"Dietland" will launch next month on AMC with a two-hour premiere beginning Monday, June 4th.

synopsis:
DIETLAND is a wickedly funny and extraordinarily timed satire about Plum Kettle, a ghostwriter for the editor of one of New York's hottest fashion magazines. Struggling with self-image and fed up with how she's treated by her boss and society, Plum sets out on a wildly complicated road to self-awakening. At the same time, everyone is buzzing over news reports about men, accused of sexual abuse and assault, who are disappearing and meeting untimely, violent deaths.

Plum also finds herself in the middle of two factions -- one sisterhood who may be responsible for the attacks on male harassers, and the other which preaches female empowerment. She straddles these two groups, trying to make sense of the changing world and her part in it.

Equal parts revenge fantasy and heartfelt journey to self-acceptance, Dietland, which is based on Sarai Walker's 2015 best-selling critically acclaimed novel of the same name, is a darkly comedic story that explores a multitude of issues faced by women today -- including patriarchy, misogyny, rape culture, and unrealistic beauty standards.
