"My 600-lb Life" Seasons 1 through 6 - 2012 through 2018 - (Still in Production)
This series is a reality TV show based on the lives of real people who are morbidly obese and wish to go through the process of weight loss surgery. The show chronicles their time before, during, and after their surgery.
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2152112/?ref_=nv_sr_1
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/My_600-lb_Life

The show features a cast of real individuals. As such, none really have extensive IMDB entries beyond their credit on this show. I would suggest following the above links to see through the full cast on IMDB.


Some may consider this entry improper for our type of audience. I didn't add it to be controversial. I added it because the show still features a plus sized main cast. Simply informing the users here that such a show exists.

"Taboo : Fat" Season 6 Episode 2 - 2010
This is a Docu-Series which focuses on sub-cultures and usually unaccepted ideologies held by select groups of people from around the world. The series aired from 2002 till 2014. The 2nd episode of the 6th season dealt with the taboo topic of being fat as dealt within different societies.

"In much of the West thin is beautiful, and fat is taboo. But a new health epidemic is sweeping the planet: obesity. We follow the story of Alan, who at 650 pounds is imprisoned in his own bedroom. In Mauritania mothers risk the health of their daughters by force-feeding them to fatten them for marriage. In the U.S.A., Deidra, a 450 pound model is fat, proud and happy. And 24 "plus size" women push the ideals of beauty when they compete in the Miss Plus America Pageant."

"Hocus Pocus" 1993 - (although not plus size centered in content, since one of the main cast members was a plus sized actress, I felt it counts).
A trio of 17th century witches returns to menace the town of Salem on Halloween night. A small group of adolescents work together to make sure the witches see their last dawn.
