Drew Barrymore & Timothy Olyphant find plenty of suburban horror in ‘Santa Clarita Diet’
Former Justified star Timothy Olyphant and movie star Drew Barrymore have teamed up for a brand new Netflix series Santa Clarita Diet…and it looks surprisingly original, hilarious, dark and sweet all at the same time.
The series follows Sheila and Joel (Barrymore and Olyphant), a married couple with kids who work in real estate in Santa Clarita, California. However, things take a turn for the unexpected after Sheila becomes a zombie, which threatens the family’s seemingly perfect life…though they don’t seem to mind too much.
The trailer offers some great moments from Barrymore, whose character goes through quite the change without much fuss. Her on screen husband, played by Olyphant, is also a cool customer all things considered, and employs some dark methods to ensure his wife gets the ‘nutrition’ she needs.
Santa Clarita Diet is set to premiere on Netflix on February 3.
