Background

Neilson Black began writing New You in 2008, it was the third full length script he wrote. Originally the idea was about an obese woman with an eating disorder, developing from obesity, to bulimia and then full on anorexia. So the original story was about the cycle of the illness.

But a lot of elements had to be cut such as the obese theme partly due to budget reasons.
