9780544373433_0b363Sarai Walker’s debut novel debut about weight, beauty, and gender inequality, Dietland (HMH; Highbridge Audio; OverDrive Sample) is set to become a TV series, developed by Marti Noxon who co-created the Lifetime channel’s UnREAL and has worked on Mad Men, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Grey’s Anatomy, and Glee.

Entertainment Weekly is clearly excited, having been fans of both Dietland, the book, and Noxon’s  series UnREAL, calling  the new project “a match made in feminist-media heaven.”

Dietland received a great deal of attention when it came out last year. It was a June 2015 Indie Next pick, made multiple “best of the month” lists, and, in addition to being an EW favorite, was also picked by Amazon, Kirkus, and BookPage as a top title of 2015.
