Starved

Starved is an FX Network television situation comedy that aired for one season of seven episodes in 2005. The series was about four friends who each suffer from eating disorders, who met at a "shame-based" support group called Belt Tighteners. Its characters included those with bulimia, anorexia, and binge eating disorder. Eric Schaeffer created the show as well as writing, starring in and directing it, based upon his own struggle with eating disorders. In addition to his own life experiences, Schaeffer also drew upon the experiences of the other members of the principal cast, each of whom coincidentally had struggled with food issues of their own.

Starved was the lead-in of FX's hour-long "Other Side of Comedy" block with It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. FX executives wanted to use the two series to begin building comedy programming and broaden the network's demographic. The series debuted on August 4, 2005 to poor critical reviews and was cancelled in October 2005, when FX picked Sunny over Starved for renewal.

Famous quotes containing the word starved:

    When pain of the world surrounds us with darkness and despair,
    When searching just confounds us with false hopes ev’rywhere,
    When lives are starved for meaning and destiny is bare,
    We are called to follow Jesus and let God’s healing flow through us.
    Jim Strathdee (20th century)

    See him, when starved to death and turned to dust,
    Presented with a monumental bust!
    The poet’s fate is here in emblem shown:
    He asked for bread, and he received a stone.
    Samuel Wesley (1691–1739)

    All the proud fathers are ashamed to go home.
    Their women cluck like starved pullets,
    Dying for love.
    James Wright (1927–1980)
