Nellie Andreeva for Deadline:

Physical, starring Rose Byrne, reflects Weisman’s penchant for darkly funny stories about the often surprising inner lives of women. Set in a 1980s Southern California beach community, it follows a woman (Byrne) struggling in her life as a quietly tortured housewife who finds an unconventional path to power through an unlikely source: the world of aerobics.

Weisman hit her stride as a writer-producer on seasons 7 and 8 of ABC’s Desperate Housewives. She also served as co-executive producer on Hulu’s The Path.
