Lifetime Wants To Be Fat Like Me


Lifetime Original Movie To Be Fat Like Me will debut Monday, Jan. 8 at 9 p.m. (EST/PST).

To Be Fat Like Me stars Kaley Cuoco (8 Simple Rules) and Caroline Rhea (The Biggest Loser) in “the story of an attractive high-school junior who experiences first-hand the extreme prejudice and heartbreak overweight teens face when she attends class undercover in a fat suit and prosthetics as part of a statewide film competition,” Lifetime Television said.

The movie was based on the true story and experiences of New York teen Ali Schmidt, who went undercover for a 2003 network-news special on obesity.
