Marti Noxon creates new TV shows based on her personal experience with anorexia and alcoholism

Marti Noxon has written and produced a string of hit TV shows, from “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” to “Grey’s Anatomy.” Now she’s created two new shows. One is “Dietland,” about women taking up arms in the name of feminism. The second is “Sharp Objects,” about a journalist who investigates a murder in her hometown, and she struggles with alcoholism and carves words onto her body.
