Well, it’s the new year, and many people are looking shed that holiday weight by going gluten free or perhaps trying that paleo thing. But in the upcoming Netflix series “Santa Clarita Diet,” Drew Barrymore has a whole different way to change her life.
So far, the streaming service has stayed pretty vague on the premise of the show, only to say that it follows married couple Joel and Sheila, who lead 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. Sounds like the premise of your standard Sundance indie, until we learn that Sheila is eating people. Gotta admit, didn’t see that coming.
“Santa Clarita Diet” arrives on February 3rd.
