Much like Abbi from Broad City whether she is high after dental surgery or looking for the perfect suitcase recommendation I love Drew Barrymore and finding out she was joining the ever growing Netflix series list of actors was a thrill.
Then came the name – Santa Clarita Diet – and it sounded like some kind of Eat, Pray, Love setup. I have never been happier in my first assumptions being wrong and really I should’ve known better as it is from the Better off Ted creator. I have only seen a handful of episodes of Better off Ted several years ago on a plane to New Zealand and always intended on watching the rest of. But I digress.
First the zombie angle was revealed and during the Golden Globes this teaser was released:
And now we have the full trailer and boy does it look full on delightful. Timothy Olyphant is great in these slightly off kilter parts and I’m so glad to see him doing comedy again (plus his hair looks amazing). Also it is makes me want to rewatch Go. The comedy zombie bracket is a crowded one that includes some brilliant takes such as iZombie, Shaun of the Dead, Zombieland and the fun Life After Beth and Warm Bodies, but there is still room for more when it looks this fun.
And for those strong Drew Barrymore feelings:
This never gets old.
Santa Clarita Diet debuts Friday, February 3.
