Netflix is continuing to expand their original library. One of their new series is ‘Santa Clarita Diet’, starring scream queen Drew Barrymore, as a cannibal.
Timothy Olyphant, Thomas Crawford, Christina Ferraro, Terry Walters, Ramona Young, Natalie Morales, and Brenadette Balagtas co-star.
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.”
Showrunner Victor Fresco (My Name is Earl) will serve as executive producer along with Barrymore, Aaron Kaplan, Timothy Olyphant, Tracy Katsky, Ember Trusdell and Chris Miller.
‘Santa Clarita’ will debut on Netflix’s streaming service on February 3, 2017.
