Marti Noxon Developing High-Stakes Soap Opera Set in NYC's Restaurant Scene for Fox

Marti Noxon continues to expand her TV empire. 

While heading Lifetime’s “UnReal” and “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce,” Noxon has been EPing Marcia Gay Harden’s upcoming medical drama “Code Black” on CBS. And Noxon has now added to her slate the development of a Fox soap opera called “Hungry,” described as “set in the down and dirty, cutthroat and exciting restaurant world of New York City. The series centers on a young, aspiring chef who lands the thankless job as a line cook for one of Manhattan’s most famous — and infamous — culinary stars.” 

Noxon will executive produce “Hungry” with “Girlfriends’ Guide” EP Meryl Poster and Nina Colman, who will write the pilot.  

There’s no word yet on the gender of “Hungry’s” lead, but Noxon’s history with women-centric series and the all-female creative team announced so far give us hope that she’ll continue writing great, prominent roles for women.
