One network’s pass is a streaming service’s pickup. Netflix has just picked up Debby Ryan dramedy Insatiable to series just weeks after The CW passed on ordering the pilot to series.
The streaming giant has handed out a 13-episode pickup for the show about a disgraced, dissatisfied civil lawyer-turned-beauty pageant coach (Dallas Roberts) who takes on a vengeful, bullied teenager (Disney Channel grad Ryan) as his client. Lauren Gussis penned the script for the drama.
According to the reports, The CW remained high on Insatiable, but had no shelf space remaining after having a strong pilot season where all six of its hour-long projects came in strong. The network renewed nearly its entire lineup.
Sarah Colonna, Kimmy Shields, Alyssa Milano, Erinn Westbrook, Michael Provost and Chris Gorham round out the cast.
