Debby Ryan sure knows how to make one smashing entrance.
The 25-year-old stars in the upcoming Netflix dark comedy “Insatiable” which just announced that it will be premiering August 10, 2018. If the announcement video showing Debby as her character Patty is any indicator, this is going to be a fun ride.
“Insatiable” is a dark, twisted revenge comedy starring Ryan, Dallas Roberts, and Alyssa Milano. For years, Patty (Debby Ryan) has been bullied, ignored, and underestimated by those around her because of her weight. But now that she finds herself suddenly thin, Patty is out for payback against anyone who has ever made her feel bad about herself. Bob Armstrong (Dallas Roberts), a disgraced attorney whose true passion is coaching beauty pageant contestant, is the only one who sees Patty’s potential, and takes her under his wing — first as a legal client, and then as a pageant contestant whom he coaches toward becoming the top pageant queen in the country. But Bob and his wife Coralee (Alyssa Milano) have no idea how deep Patty’s rage goes, or how far she will go to exact revenge on anyone who has ever wronged her. Bullies beware: payback’s a bitch, revenge is sweet, and if you cross Patty, you’ll be her next treat.
The show was originally intended for the CW but when they passed on the pilot, Netflix snatched it up and we’re so glad they did. The show also stars Christopher Gorham (“Bob Barnard”), Erinn Westbrook (“Magnolia Barnard”), Michael Provost (“Brick Armstrong”), Kimmy Shields (“Nonnie”), Irene Choi (“Dixie Sinclair”) and Sarah Colonna (“Angie”).
If the teaser or synopsis don’t convince you to check the show out, let Debby do it. She told Cosmo that the show is “the perfect blend of hilarious and messed up and all of the above.” And while Patty may not be what you typically think of a heroine, Debby explains, “everyone who does bad things has, in their mind, a perfectly logical and justifiable explanation for it. I don’t think that a lot of people really want to see bad, people reframe and justify things in order to live with them. Ultimately, Patty cares about people.”
Count us in! Be sure to mark your calendars for August 10 when you’ll be able to binge watch the first season of “Insatiable” on Netflix.
