Genre vets unite in a brand new Netflix series that looks delicious.
Netflix has cooked up a February 3, 2017 release for “Santa Clarita Diet”, which stars Scream‘s Drew Barrymore as a suburban cannibal!
In “Santa Clarita Diet”, Joel (Timothy Olyphant, The Crazies, “Justified”) and Sheila (Drew 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.
Showrunner Victor Fresco (“Dinosaurs”, “My Name is Earl”), Drew Barrymore, Timothy Olyphant, Aaron Kaplan, Tracy Katsky, Chris Miller and Ember Truesdell are executive producers on the series. Nancy Juvonen is a producer.
“Sheila comes to life when she becomes undead,” Barrymore explains. “And I wish that without consequences, of course, everybody could experience that kind of liberation, that kind of strength, that kind of terminator vision, that tingly skin that’s like probably laid dormant in you for a while. And not just censoring yourself…what a fun way that is to live”
Olyphant added: “It’s like any kind of long-term relationship — if your partner goes through some changes and tries to strive for something new, it’s both unsettling and it feels a bit threatening, and you have to sort of take it in. But then you have to decide whether you’re gonna go along for the ride. It’s gonna force you to take a look at the way you see things, the way you operate, and are you willing also to take risks and try to meet the challenge.”
