Netflix is appealing to post-Thanksgiving dieters by announcing the release date for its Drew Barrymore comedy series “Santa Clarita Diet.” The show stars Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant and premieres on February 3, 2017.
Here’s the official synopsis:
In “Santa Clarita Diet,” Joel (Olyphant) and Sheila (Barrymore) are husband and wife realtors leading vaguely discontented lives in the L.A. suburb of Santa Clarita with their teenaged daughter Abby (Liv Hewson), until Sheila goes through a dramatic change sending their lives down a road of death and destruction…but in a good way.
Created and executive produced by Victor Fresco, “Santa Clarita Diet” also counts Barrymore, Olymphant, Aaron Kaplan, Tracy Katsky, Chris Miller and Ember Truesdell as executive producers. Nancy Juvonen is a producer on the series.
Barrymore recently served as an executive producer on writer-director Christian Ditter’s “How to Be Single,” starring Dakota Johnson, Anders Holm, Leslie Mann, Damon Wayans Jr., Alison Brie and Rebel Wilson. Her upcoming projects as an executive producer include the feature film “Freak Show,” currently in post-production, and the mystery-crime series “Blooms,” about twin brothers investigating their father’s murder, set for 2017. The show stars real life twin brothers Max and Charlie Carver.
