Fat activist Lindy West (who’s probably already blocked you on Twitter) will soon be bringing her brand of white feminism and body positivity to the silver screen thanks to the actress from Zack and Miri Make a Porno.

Elizabeth Banks has optioned West’s memoir Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman for a TV series, a show the average Heat Street reader will no doubt be pining to DVR.

West, who uses her size as a starting block in the the oppression Olympics, will no doubt make a great addition to television with her message that it’s okay to be unhealthy and people should just shut up about the obesity epidemic.

Banks optioned the memoir through her company Brownstone Productions she runs alongside her husband Max Handelman.
