B as in Beauty (TV Series)

Hilarious, weird, moving. All in the same character.

Beauty is a Cuban American girl who works in a successful ad agency. She is attractive, charismatic, lovely and efficient… but she lives with a social stigma that does not allow her to improve in her job, nor in her personal life: she hates her overweight and all of those who judge her. In fact, she prefers to be called “B” instead of her real name.

She belongs to a company where the physical appearance is very important: “Too fat to promote her” she hears her bosses say. Natasha Sokolov, tax accountant by day, and director of a plus-sized “personal comforters” agency by night, cannot help her lose weight nor promote her. However, she manages to change B and make her feel beauty and desirable.

The girl starts dating successful men of singular tastes. Among them, B meets Simon, an insomniac who can only sleep when she is sit next to him. This could mean true love or a complete disaster.

B, with her same old curves and a new attitude, manages to empower herself and use it as a weapon that makes her feel confident and stable. In fact, this is so that she becomes successful at work and starts planning a vengeance against her bosses.
