Netflix boss Reed Hastings may have recently said the streaming service needs to be more ruthless when it comes to cancelling its original programming (opens in new tab) – but it's reportedly stepped in to save a drama pilot which didn't make it at The CW.
Insatiable, inspired by a real-life story, tells the tale of a disgraced, dissatisfied civil lawyer-turned-beauty pageant coach who takes on a bullied teenager as his client. According to Deadline (opens in new tab), Netflix is ordering a 13-episode series.
Former Disney star Debby Ryan leads Insatiable's cast as the bullied teen, while Dallas Roberts, formerly of The Walking Dead (opens in new tab) and The Good Wife (opens in new tab), takes on the role of attorney Bob. Alyssa Milano is also part of the cast.
The dark comedy was piloted by The CW to good reviews, but with stiff competition from other pilots including the DC Comics series Black Lightning (opens in new tab), and the upcoming Dynasty (opens in new tab) reboot, The CW dropped Insatiable.
Netflix is thought to be finalizing a deal with CBS TV Studios over the rights to the show, with hopes of making it a Netflix Original series. Netflix has declined to comment on the reports.
