Last seen as Gloria Steinem in FX’s Mrs. America, the chameleon-esque Rose Byrne (Damages) takes on one of her juiciest roles yet by going back to the 1980s, a time when the aerobics craze gave women not only a rush of empowerment but business opportunities. No one could use it more than dissatisfied San Diego housewife Sheila Rubin, whose inner voice of bitter self-loathing reveals serious food/body issues. This dramedy, launching with three episodes, follows Sheila as she takes to the exercise with physical abandon, becoming a pro and eventually a lifestyle guru with enviable hair. For many, those were the days.
