AMC’s newest series, Dietland, centers around Plum Kettle, a ghostwriter for one of New York’s hottest fashion magazines. Although she’s achieved a level of success, Plum’s daily life also includes struggles with her self-image, constant mistreatment from her boss, and a general sense that society is rooting against her.
Plum got used to the negativity, seeing it simply as the way things were meant to be… but after years of accepting more than her fair share of abuse, Plum is fed up!
Equal parts revenge fantasy and heartfelt journey to self-acceptance, Dietland is based on Sarai Walker’s best-selling critically acclaimed novel. A darkly comedic story, it explores various issues faced by Plum and many other women today. The series stars Golden Globe® and Emmy® Award-winner Julianna Margulies (The Good Wife, ER) as Kitty Montgomery, and Joy Nash (The Mindy Project, Twin Peaks: The Return) as Plum Kettle.
Plum is up against patriarchy, misogyny, rape culture, and unrealistic beauty standards, but despite facing these tough opponents, she’s ready to fight.
Join the revolution! Watch Dietland, Mondays at 9/8c on AMC Ch. 254.
