Barrymore ventures out as a suburban zombie.

Drew Barrymore epitomizes the girl next door in such films such as 50 FIRST DATES and NEVER BEEN KISSED. She is known for her makeup line Flower Beauty which beautifies and glams women of all walks of life. So, it is pretty damn refreshing to see the actress embrace a new role: a suburban zombie.

Netflix recently released a trailer for their new show “Santa Clarita Diet,” that puts Barrymore into an unpredictable situation. The plot of the series is as follows: Joel and Sheila Hammond are realtors leading vaguely discontented lives in the L.A. 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 comedy horror series was created by Victor Fresco (“Better off Ted”) and will also star Tim Olyphant (SCREAM 2), as Barrymore’s husband. Although details of the film are sparse, Barrymore will have to come to grips with being undead and feeding on humans. 

Binge-worthy “Santa Clarita Diet” will premiere on Netflix February 3rd, 2017.
