A Walking Dead Type Diet
When I first started hearing about “The Santa Clarita Diet,” like any man, I just thought, “Great, some show dedicated to some chick who thought up some diet…blah blah blah.”
Then I saw that Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant, two of my faves, were starring and I’m like, “WHAT are these two doing in something that HAS to be the most boring script they’ve ever read.”
Okay, like the weatherman, I was LOUD wrong. Listen to the official description…
“In Santa Clarita Diet, 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 with their teenaged daughter Abby (Liv Hewson), until Sheila goes through a dramatic change sending their lives down a road of death and destruction…but in a good way.
The “dramatic change” Sheila undergoes in the series opener is, in fact, death. And while they tend to their open houses and teenage daughter, the couple must sate Sheila’s unbridled id and undead hunger, first with raw meat and, eventually, the human kind.”
I’m all in. The show starts streaming on February 3.
