Jazmin Biltmore (played by Oscar-winning actress Mo'Nique) is a plus-sized woman looking to break into the fashion world despite it's gravitation towards super-skinny models. She constantly attempts to slim down by using diet pills, with the ultimate goal of going down to a size 5.
After winning a trip to a fancy resort, she encounters a Nigerian man who encourages her to embrace her size. A clash of opinion soon ensues and Jazmin must figure out for herself whether she should fulfill society's expectations or her own.
A twist on the classic "just be yourself" story, Phat Girlz is sure to have you rethinking your body image. Tune in November 1 at 7:30P/6:30C for the premiere of Phat Girlz.
