Netflix has finally coughed up a first trailer for their upcoming zombie series Santa Clarita Diet, starring Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant as Sheila and Joel. When Sheila dies and comes back to life as a high-functioning zombie she still retains all of her faculties, however she also acquires a taste for raw [human] meat.. So the setup is basically a spin on iZombie, but rather than a crime-solving worker at the local morgue, Barrymore spends her days as a real estate agent.
The series also definitely leans more towards the comedic than iZombie and with a heavy-hitting cast which also includes Nathan Fillion (Con Man, Firefly), Mary Elizabeth Ellis (The Grinder), and Ricardo Chavira (Scandal). Victor Fresco is showrunner and creator and if his past credits are any indication, including Better Off Ted, My Life is Earl, and Sean Saves the World, the ball is very much in their court to succeed.
