What is Santa Clarita Diet?
Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant star as Sheila and Joel, married real estate agents on the verge of mid-life crises.
One morning Sheila wakes up with no pulse and a craving for human flesh.
She discovers that she has died in the night and is now a zombie – a term that her neighbour Eric dismisses as “inherently negative”.
Being undead gives Sheila a new lease of life and helps rejuvenate her stagnant marriage.
She no longer needs to sleep, and her new protein-rich diet has boosted her sex drive and made her far more productive.
The new Netflix series follows Sheila, Joel and their teenage daughter Abby as they adjust to Sheila’s new diet.
She goes out on murder sprees and sips on human smoothies – all while maintaining a a Californian Stepford Wives-style facade.
