Out today! Sweetbitter debut’s on Starz, based on the best-selling novel by Stephanie Danler. The story follows an (Ella Purnell) 22-year-old who arrives in New York City ready to pursue a new life. When she’s invited to train at one of the best restaurants in the city, she thinks she’s found a steady income and a safe place to wait. But Tess quickly becomes intoxicated by the chaotic, adrenalized world behind the scenes: tasting expensive wine, exploring dive bars and learning who she can trust.
Danler writes Sweetbitter and exec produces along with Stu Zicherman, who also serves as showrunner and director of the finale episode; Richard Shepard, who directed the series premiere; and Plan B Entertainment’s Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, and Sarah Esberg.
