Variety reported exclusively on March 15 that Noxon would direct “To the Bone” from her own script.

Noxon has accumulated producing and writing credits on a wide assortment of TV series, including “Mad Men,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Private Practice.” She’s exec producing and writing Bravo’s “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce” and Lifetime’s “UnReal” along with serving as an executive producer on the CBS medical drama “Code Black.”

Reeves recently wrapped production on “John Wick 2” and is in post-production on “The Whole Truth,” “The Neon Demon” and “The Bad Batch.”
