Drew Barrymore to star in Netflix comedy series


Los Angeles: Netflix has given a green signal to a comedy series, which will star actors Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant. Titled “Santa Clarita Diet”, the single-camera project hails from creator Victor Fresco, reports

“Santa Clarita Diet” follows Joel (Olyphant) and Sheila (Barrymore), a married couple who are real estate agents leading vaguely discontented lives in the Los Angeles 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.

“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,” Fresco said in a statement.

Netflix’s Cindy Holland said: “The genius casting of Timothy and Drew combined with Victor’s unique comedic sensibility will delight, and definitely surprise, our members around the world.” “Santa Clarita Diet” is slated to launch in 2017 on Netflix.
