She enlists the help of a rather shady lawyer, Bob, whose main interest seems to be coaching beauty pageant contestants, although he is shunned by the pageant world for a previous scandal.

Bob eventually decides that Patty would make a good choice for a pageant queen, but as he begins to coach her, he has no idea how deep her rage goes and what she would do for revenge.

Who is in the cast?

Starring as Patty is Debby Ryan, who has previously appeared in TV series Sing It! and Jessie, as well as film Rip Tide.

Her lawyer, Bob Armstrong, is played by Dallas Roberts who has appeared in The Good Wife, The Walking Dead and The L Word, as well as films 3:10 to Yuma, Dallas Buyers Club, and Walk the Line.

Alyssa Milano plays Bob’s wife Coralee, who Patty takes a dislike to, especially as she grows closer to him herself. Alyssa is known for her work on Charmed, Mistresses and Melrose Place, and first shot to fame as teenager Samantha in 80s sitcom Who's the Boss?

Insatiable is available on Netflix.
