Tv Season Info

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.

Watching the show toss a million balls in the air is riveting, even if I have no particular expectation it won't ultimately drop most of them.

Dietland, a dark comedy from Buffy the Vampire Slayer producer Marti Noxon, gets off to a similarly sticky start, but its premise promises to be an interesting one should it manage to iron out the initial creases.
