Alyssa Milano wants to make it very clear that her new Netflix show, Insatiable, isn’t fat-shaming anyone, despite what many seemed to think after seeing its trailer. In fact, the show does quite the opposite — and working on the project made her feel empowered and inspired to speak her mind.
“The more I think about it, the trailer was feeding into exactly the thematic issue of the show, which is, ‘Don’t judge a book by its cover,’” she tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue, on stands Friday. “People are judging 12 hours of TV from a minute and 28-second trailer.”
The series follows former Disney darling Debby Ryan as a high school student named Patty who was bullied relentlessly about her weight.
