Debby Ryan and Alyssa Milano say they're "proud" of their controversial new series, "Insatiable."
"I think we hear and see and acknowledge some of the backlash," Ryan told Entertainment Tonight.
"I think for us, I know that the show that I signed on for -- and I'm very proud of what we've done -- and it makes me really happy that people are seeing it."
"I'm completely aware that it's not a show for everybody, but we're really proud of what we did," Milano added. "And I think that people, at the very least, it will be a conversation starter."
The show received heavy backlash after its first trailer premiered in July.
"We honestly never intended to hurt anyone with the trailer," Milano told Vanity Fair at the premiere.
"What I really love about this show is that we're openly discussing societal issues in a funny, dark way rather than sweeping it under the carpet," she added.
"From fat-shaming to mommy-shaming to slut-shaming -- whatever shaming we are facing in society will only go away by being able to talk about these issues."
"Insatiable" debuted a 12-episode first season Friday on Netflix.
The series co-stars Dallas Roberts, Christopher Gorham and Erinn Westbrook.
