‘Santa Clarita Diet’ Gets New Trailer & Poster
Before you skip past this thinking it’s some sort of health & diet show, STOP. Santa Clarita Diet is in fact a new zombie, horror/comedy from Netflix, starring Drew Barrymore & Timothy Olyphant.
Meet the Hammonds…
Joel (Olyphant, Justified) and Sheila (Barrymore, Blended) are just your normal husband and wife realtor team, leading vaguely discontented lives in the L.A. suburb of Santa Clarita with their teenaged daughter Abby (Liv Hewson). That is until Sheila goes through a, shall we say… ‘dramatic change’… which alters their lives forever.
Yes, Sheila becomes a zombie. But not your ‘Walking Dead’, shuffling about, unable to function zombie. She feels happier, healthier, and better than ever. There’s just the minor side effect, which is the need to consume human flesh. Not wishing to see his wife deteriorate, decides to help her kill only people who deserve it.
The show basically appears to be Dexter meets iZombie. And for those of you that aren’t sold yet, you’ll notice a certain Mr. Nathan Fillion also appears to pop up in the trailer!
Creator and showrunner is Victor Fresco (My Name Is Earl, Better Off Ted), and stars Drew Barrymore as Sheila Hammond, Timothy Olyphant as Joel Hammond, Liv Hewson as Abby Hammond and Skylar Gisondo as Eric Bemis.
Santa Clarita Diet is available globally on Netflix on the 3rd February 2017.
