Meet the Hammonds. They're the nicest couple in their neighborhood. And they are also the deadliest.
Check out a behind-the-scenes featurette for Netflix's new dark comedy series "Santa Clarita Diet," which sees Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant (from "Justified") as Sheila and Joel Hammond, a happily married couple who, while raising their two teenage children (played by Liv Hewson and Skyler Gisondo), work together as local real estate agents.
Despite their perfect suburban facade, they're hiding a very dark secret: Sheila is dead! Well, she's like zombie dead. And, unfortunately, she has developed a strong appetite (and thirst) for human flesh. So, what's a couple to do, but become serial killers ... but the good kind, uh, like Dexter but without the whole forensic science thang.
Created by Victor Fresco (Better Off Ted, Andy Richter Controls the Universe), "Santa Clarita Diet" is set to premiere next week, beginning Friday, February 3rd.
Joel (Timothy Olyphant) and Sheila (Drew Barrymore) are husband and wife realtors leading vaguely discontented lives in the L.A. suburb of Santa Clarita with their teenaged daughter Abby, until Sheila goes through a dramatic change sending their lives down a road of death and destruction...but in a good way.
