The potential series centers around Bob, a disgraced civil lawyer-turned-beauty pageant coach who has no idea what he’s about to unleash upon the world when he takes on as his client Patty (Jessie‘s Debby Ryan), a bullied teenager/former fat girl who, after her jaw is broken, drops about 70 pounds.

Bob is described as an immaculately dressed married dad to two teenagers who is himself bullied — by his wife and his father/law firm boss.

Roberts’ previous TV credits also include The Walking Dead, Law & Order: SVU, Unforgettable and Rubicon.
