We’re living in what are probably the final death throes of the current zombie trend, touched off probably by 28 Days Later way back in 2002. And at this point, it’s probably hard to get too excited about anything referred to as a “zombie comedy,” but despite all that the trailer for Santa Clarita Diet actually makes the zombie comedy series look pretty good.
That might be on account of the cast – Santa Clarita Diet stars Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant as a married couple who have to try and make the best of the fact that she’s an undead zombie who craves human flesh. The trailer also has glimpses of reliably funny people like Nathan Fillion and Thomas Lennon, so it has the makings of a worthwhile series.
You can see the trailer for Santa Clarita Diet, the first season of which comes to a Netflix account near you early next month, below.
