Netflix has revealed the first trailer for Celeste Barber’s comedy, Wellmania.
Barber plays a woman named Liv, an Australian food critic in New York who’s about to hit the big time with a TV judging gig. On a quick trip home to Australia, she hits a snafu where she can’t return to the US unless she passes a health test.
The good-time girl with a commitment to a Dionysian lifestyle has to plunge into an unfamiliar world to “fix” herself – that of the wellness cult.
From gym regimes and coastal jogs to vegan diets and herbal laxatives, it’s a raucous adventure in an extreme world. But what she really needs to reckon with is what drives her fear and insecurities, and if she’s there for the people in her life.
The eight-part series is co-created by Brigid Delaney and Benjamin Law, adapted from Delaney’s nonfiction book, Wellmania: Misadventures in the Search for Wellness.
It also stars JJ Fong, Simone Kessell, Alexander Hodge, Remy Hii, Virginie Laverdure, Johnny Carr, Genevieve Mooy and Lachlan Buchanan.
Barber served as one of the executive producers alongside Warren Clarke.
Wellmania is released on Netflix on March 29.
