Netflix has a new original series coming up and it involves a newly-undead Drew Barrymore.
In Santa Clarita Diet, Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant play Sheila and Joel, an ordinary married couple working as realtors in the L.A. suburb of Santa Clarita. Their lives take on a sick twist as Sheila mysteriously transforms into something with no heartbeat that hungers for human minds: a zombie (not a politician).
With this change, the whole family has to adjust and help Sheila with her new diet - one that requires human body parts for dinner. To this end, they kill and cook any person who they think deserves to end up in a blender in order to satisfy Sheila's four foot groups.
It may sound like another zombie show, but Santa Clarita Diet takes on the undead without the despair and heavy drama that zombie-related shows usually have (i.e. The Walking Dead). Santa Clarita Diet's plot is a funny take on the zombie genre and looks like it will attempt to bring something new to the table besides a human leg.
You can watch the trailer below and see for yourself. Catch Santa Clarita Diet's premiere on Netflix this February 3.
