The new series is coming to satisfy your streaming cravings in February.
Netflix has released a promo teaser for its upcoming original show, 'Santa Clarita Diet.' The comedy series comes from writer Victor Fresco ('Better Off Ted,' 'Andy Richter Controls the Universe').
Said executive producer/showrunner Victor Fresco: "The genius of casting Timothy and Drew, combined with my comedic… oh wait, that’s Cindy's quote. I agree with what Cindy is about to say."
"The genius casting of Timothy and Drew combined with Victor’s unique comedic sensibility will delight, and definitely surprise, our members around the world," said Cindy Holland, Netflix vice president of original content.
In the single-camera series, Joel (Timothy Olyphant, Justified) and Sheila (Drew Barrymore, Blended) are husband and wife realtors leading vaguely discontented lives in the L.A. suburb of Santa Clarita, until Sheila goes through a dramatic change sending both their lives down a road of death and destruction...but in a good way.
