Julianna Margulies has been cast in the new AMC series Dietland, marking her first post-The Good Wife TV role.
Margulies will play Kitty Montgomery, a wildly ambitious magazine editor whose world is thrown into chaos when a feminist terrorist organization starts targeting people in her orbit. Sucked into a terrifying news cycle, Kitty can no longer rely on her old-school media power and must instead play a whole new game of master manipulation where rules no longer apply.
The upcoming original series comes from executive producer and showrunner Marti Noxon (Mad Men, UnReal, Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce). The show is a co-production between AMC Studios and Skydance Television under its Uncharted label and is based on Sarai Walker’s 2015 best-selling novel of the same name.
“Julianna is diabolically talented and beautiful, which makes her perfect to play our Kitty,” said Noxon. “I am genuinely honored to have the opportunity to work with her. She’s a special human and a rare actor. I can’t wait to start and for the world to get a load of this show. I am also so grateful to AMC and Skydance for supporting us and trusting the Dietland team with this provocative, wild story.”
