Forget coming-of-age stories, “Insatiable” is a coming-of-rage story.
The new Netflix dark teen comedy stars Debby Ryan as “Fatty Patty,” an overweight bully magnet who gives “revenge body” a whole new meaning. After having her jaw wired shut over the summer, Patty drops the pounds and gets a major glow-up. But instead of focusing on reinventing herself as one of the school’s popular girls, jocks or brains, she’s hell-bent on getting payback on her tormentors.
Seeing her beauty queen potential, Dallas Roberts’ Bob Armstrong takes Patty under his wing as a pageant protege. But soon he gets more than he bargained for, enlisting the help of his cunning wife, played by Alyssa Milano.
Online reaction to the trailer was mixed, with some users calling it out for “fat-shaming”.
Netflix will drop 12 episodes of “Insatiable” on August 10.
