'Insatiable' trailer: Netflix's latest dark comedy has 'Fatty Patty' lusting for revenge
Tired of all the abuse she copped while she was fat, a thin Fatty Patty now seeks to exact revenge in Netflix's new dark comedy 'Insatiable'
The first trailer for Netflix's new dark comedy 'Insatiable' is out. The trailer provides snippets from the life of a relentlessly bullied teen called Fatty Patty, played by Debby Ryan. Created and written by Lauren Gussis, who previously penned Showtime series 'Dexter' and NBC series 'E-Ring,' the series has been given the greenlight for thirteen one-hour episodes by the streaming platform.
The audience is introduced to Fatty Patty as she studies herself in a mirror with noticeable disgust at the beginning of the trailer. A narration by Patty guider us through a few glimpses from her bullied high school life in which she is fat shamed and compared to a pig. She is shunned by schoolmates who come up with some stinging monikers.
"How much more of this can I take?" she ponders. Then, a chance confrontation with a hobo ensures that she doesn't have to answer that question. Knocked out cold, Patty wakes up after the summer to find herself lean, thin, and hot, and in a position to dish out vengeance.
"Now I can be the former fatty who turned into a brain, or an athlete, or a princess. Nah, I'd rather have revenge," she says. Soon enough, the trailer descends into chaos, capturing Patty's ruthlessness as she executes her plans to get even with all those who bullied her. "I want them to hurt like I hurt," she proclaims before ominously adding "I wanted more. I was... insatiable."
"Be cunning. Be crazy. Be ruthless," the trailer announces as Patty narrates: "What can I say, this story is full of some crazy s***. That's what makes it so fun."
According to an official description, supporting her in her endeavors timidly is Bob Armstrong (Dallas Roberts), a disgraced attorney whose true passion is coaching beauty pageant contestants, and who, glimpsing Patty's potential, takes her under his wing — first as a legal client, and then as a pageant contestant whom he coaches towards becoming the top pageant queen in the country.
But neither Bob nor his wife Coralee (Alyssa Milano) are aware of how deep Patty's rage runs, or how far she will go to exact revenge on those who have wronged her. "Bullies beware: Payback’s a bitch, revenge is sweet, and if you cross Patty, you’ll be her next treat."
Also featuring in the show are Christopher Gorham, Erinn Westbrook, Michael Provost, Sarah Colonna, Kimmy Shields, Irene Choi, and Arden Myrin, with Jordan Gelber and James Lastovic cast in recurring roles.
Gussis will serve as executive producer alongside Ryan Seacrest, Nina Wass, Andrea Shay, Todd Hoffman, Dennis Kim, and Andy Fleming. Storied Media Group, Ryan Seacrest Productions, and CBS Television Studios will act as production companies.
The series is scheduled for an August 10 premiere on Netflix. Watch the trailer for 'Insatiable' below.
