Sweetbitter, Stephanie Danler’s best-selling novel about a young waitress who gets swept up in the drama of the NYC food world, is getting a small-screen adaptation courtesy of basic cable network Starz.

In the first trailer for the show, wide-eyed 20-something Tess (played by Ella Durnell) arrives in Manhattan and scores a training shift at an esteemed restaurant. Our hero is immediately overwhelmed by the pace and the demands of the job, but clearly, Tess manages to tread water long enough to develop a few relationships with people on the staff. This dramatic teaser is scored from beginning to end by LCD Soundsystem’s ballad, “New York, I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down.”
