If you loved “Drop Dead Gorgeous” you’ll want to listen up. The 1999 Kirsten Dunst-led cult comedy isn’t getting rebooted, but Netflix does have another beauty pageant-centric project in the works. The Hollywood Reporter writes that the streaming giant has ordered Debby Ryan-starrer “Insatiable” to series. Lauren Gussis (“Dexter”) penned the script.
The dramedy follows a “disgraced, dissatisfied civil lawyer turned beauty-pageant coach (Dallas Roberts) who takes on a vengeful, bullied teenager (Disney Channel alum Ryan) as his client,” THR writes. The supporting cast includes Alyssa Milano (“Charmed”), Kimmy Shields (“Big Little Lies”), Erinn Westbroo (“Awkward.”), and Sarah Colonna (“Parker’s Anchor”).
You may have previously heard word of “Insatiable” in connection to The CW. Just weeks ago the network passed on the show’s pilot, though according to THR it was simply a matter of The CW having “no shelf space” left to air the program. It “remained high on ‘Insatiable,’” but ultimately had to let the show go. Fortunately Netflix also recognized the show’s potential — and handed out a 13-episode order.
Ryan’s credits include “Sing It!” “Jessie,” and “The Suite Life on Deck.” She’ll appear in “Life of the Party,” an upcoming college-set comedy toplined by Melissa McCarthy and “Love’s” Gillian Jacobs.
Debby Ryan Beauty Pageant Dramedy “Insatiable” Lands at Netflix was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

After several days of deliberations, the CW has opted not to proceed with pilots Insatiable and Searchers. Insatiable (and possibly Searchers) will be shopped elsewhere. Last week, the network picked up four of its six pilots to series, Dynasty and Valor from CBS TV Studios, and Black Lightning and Life Sentence from Warner Bros TV.

With Upfronts still more than two weeks away, it’s still early in the decision-making process, but as the current broadcast season winds down, television executives are beginning to form opinions on the pilots in contention for their network’s 2017-2018 slate.
As always, a handful of projects are rising as early frontrunners, while others have not impressed with their first cuts and are in need of re-shoots and re-tooling. No stark trends have emerged across the broadcast networks, though there are a number of military-themed dramas, many female-led comedies and lighter one-hours in the works. In contrast to the past few pilot seasons, reboots are not as hot this year, though there are a few, such as the CW’s “Dynasty,” “S.W.A.T.” at CBS and “What About Barb” at NBC.
Of course, television executives and writers are all on edge with a possible WGA strike on the horizon, but »
