Looking for ways to liven up your humdrum life? Try un-death and a diet of fresh human flesh. It worked for Sheila Hammond!

Suburban sitcom meets zombie comedy in Santa Clarita Diet, a new series created by Victor Fresco (Better Off Ted and Andy Richter Controls the Universe) for Netflix, starring Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant as a suburban couple facing a radical change in lifestyle.

Here’s the official description:

“Joel (Timothy Olyphant) 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, until Sheila goes through a dramatic change sending their lives down a road of death and destruction… but in a good way.”
