So, Let’s say that Warm Bodies, Desperate Housewives and Dexter had a threesome then had a baby. The offspring that would be produced would be Netflix’s new original horror comedy series Santa Clarita Diet starring Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant.
Barrymore portrays your typical suburban housewife, working as a real estate agent with a loving husband and daughter. She becomes ill only to wake up to find that she is lacking a heartbeat and is in fact dead, or UNDEAD. In order to control her craving for living flesh and keep her from eating her young, she and her husband, devise a plan to keep her well-fed. The question is…Who do they kill and how will they cover their tracks?
“We have to kill someone who deserves it. I guess the prototype would be a young, single Hitler,” Joel (Olyphant) states. Sheila (Barrymore) answers, “We’d be heroes!”
Answers to these questions remains to be seen as Netflix premieres all 10 episodes on February 3. Watch the exclusive trailer above (Warning: may contain some graphic content).
So if zombies and laughs are right up your undead alley, then Santa Clarita Diet, from creator Victor Fresco (Better Off Ted), is a must see!
