Olyphant, Barrymore Set For Netflix Comedy

Timothy Olyphant and Drew Barrymore are set to star in Netflix’s original single-camera comedy series “Santa Clarita Diet” which will premiere next year on the streaming giant.

Victor Fresco (“Better Off Ted”) created the series which centers on married couple Joel (Olyphant) and Sheila (Barrymore), realtors leading a vaguely discontented lives in the titular Los Angeles suburb. Sheila goes through a dramatic change that sends both of their lives down a road of death and destruction – albeit in a good way.

An episode count has not yet been determined. This will mark Barrymore’s TV series regular debut, and Olyphant’s first series since wrapping his acclaimed six season turn in FX’s “Justified”.

Fresco, Barrymore, Olyphant, Aaron Kaplan, Tracy Katsky, Chris Miller and Ember Truesdell will executive produce.
