A suburban couple find appearing normal in front of the neighbours increasingly difficult in Netflix’s upcoming series Santa Clarita Diet. After all, as husband Joel Hammond (Timothy Olyphant) tells his wife Sheila (Drew Barrymore), “killing people isn’t normal, sweetheart.”
You can get close to the cannibalistic couple in this short featurette, in which the two leads discuss the series alongside some hilarious clips. In the show, married realtors Sheila and Joel lead routine and somewhat discontented lives in the LA suburb of Santa Clarita. When Sheila undergoes a transformation that sees her let go of her social restraints, as well as develop a taste for human flesh however, their drab existence is given the injection of excitement that they so crave.
The series also stars Liv Hewson as Sheila and Joel’s teenage daughter Abby, as well as Richard T. Jones (Godzilla, American Horror Story), Terry Walters (La La Land), Mary Elizabeth Ellis (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) and Z Nation’s Ramona Young.
Barrymore and Scream 2/The Crazies star Olyphant also act as executive producers on the Netflix production, alongside Aaron Kaplan, Tracy Katsky, Chris Miller, Ember Truesdell and Showrunner Victor Fresco (Better Off Ted).
Season 1 of Santa Clarita Diet will be available in full from February 3rd.
