“Survival of the Thickest revolves around Mavis Beaumont (Michelle Buteau). Mavis is black, plus size, and recently single (not by choice!). She unexpectedly has to rebuild her life as a struggling stylist,” reads the official synopsis. “She’s determined not only to survive but to thrive, with the support of her dream family, a positive attitude towards her body and a cute V-neckline with some lip gloss. The screenplay is based on Buteau’s acclaimed book of essays.”
