Amazon Prime Video has secured exclusive UK rights to Dietland, AMC’s newest original series starring Julianna Margulies (The Good Wife) and Joy Nash (The Mindy Project). Dietland will premiere on Amazon Prime Video UK on Tuesday June 5th, less than 24 hours behind the U.S. broadcast.

“Dietland is a riveting series –and the timing couldn’t be more relevant;” said Jay Marine, Vice-President, Prime Video Europe. “We’re excited about offering our customers this brilliant series exclusively, alongside other shows that put strong women at their core, such as The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and The Bold Type.”

Based on Sarai Walker’s novel of the same name, Dietland follows Plum Kettle, ghost-writer for the editor of one of New York’s hottest fashion magazines, as she struggles with self-image and sets out on a wildly complicated road to self-acceptance. 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.

The drama series is a co-production between Skydance Television and AMC Studios and in addition to Julianna Marhulies and Joy Nash, also stars Robin Weigert (Big Little Lies), Adam Rothenberg (Ripper Street), Tamara Tunie (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit), Erin Darke (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), Rowena King (Shut Eye), Will Seefried (The Deuce) and newcomers Ricardo Davila and Tramell Tillman. Marti Noxon serves as executive producer, writer, showrunner and directed multiple episodes.
