WATCH: The first trailer for AMC’s Dietland

DietlandAMC has released the first trailer for its new, female-led drama, Dietland.

Collider reports that the newest addition to the AMC canon will be led by Joy Nash, as a woman who wants to understand where exactly she stands. The show already has a very exciting premise as it will start questioning the current standards for beauty. But the more intriguing part of Dietland is that it is also described as “a revenge fantasy that takes on the patriarchy by killing off men who have been accused of sexual abuse and assault.” Sounds very promising.

Here is the official synopsis of the show:

“From Marti Noxon (Mad Men, UnREAL) and starring Joy Nash (The Mindy Project, Twin Peaks) and Golden Globe® and Emmy® Award-winner Julianna Margulies (The Good Wife, ER), Dietland is a wickedly funny and extraordinarily timed satire about Plum Kettle (Nash), a ghost-writer 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 warring 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 is a darkly comedic story that explores a multitude of issues faced by women today – including patriarchy, misogyny, rape culture and unrealistic beauty standards.”

Dietland will premiere on June 4 on AMC.
