The show where Drew Barrymore eats brains…
After binge watching The OA, Black Mirror and Stranger Things and looking for something a bit lighter? Well Santa Clarita Diet is along the same lines as those previously mentioned but in a brighter setting and a has a very specific comedic style. This comedy is definitely one to add to your watch list.
In Santa Clarita Diet Drew Barrymore plays suburban realtor Shiela who somehow turns into a zombie/undead/ flesh eating creature… and loves it. It’s definitely something different that will stand out from the rest. It has a quirky style with a strange yet brilliant mix of horror and comedy. It’s not your typical ‘zombies are taking over the world, we are all doomed’ show. Throughout the season there is a great storyline that explores murder and gore while at the same time high school drama and relationships.
Alongside Barrymore the show stars Timothy Olyphant, Liv Hewson, Ricardo Chavira and Skyler Gisondo. The show is created by Victor Fresco who will also serve as executive producer alongside Barrymore, Olyphant, Aaron Kaplan, Tracy Katsky, Chris Miller and Ember Truesdell.
The show is coming to Netflix on February 3rd.
