How can you tell when the zombie trend has finally been milked dry? When Drew Barrymore is playing one.
Seriously, though, early buzz is positive about Santa Clarita Diet, a new Netflix series premiering February 3. Drew plays Sheila Hammond, a perfectly average real estate agent in California with a perfectly average family. The job pays well and she has a happy, loving marriage. Her only real problem, if you can call it that, is she’s secretly a zombie with a constant hunger for human flesh.
There’s some real talent behind this: the creator is Victor Fresco, the man who brought us Better Off Ted for ABC and Andy Richter Controls The Universe for Fox. And the cast is great: in addition to the seasoned Barrymore, Timothy Olyphant (TV’s Justified) is playing Barrymore’s husband Joel, and Nathan Fillion (you know who Nathan Fillion is) plays the rival agent at Sheila’s office.
Santa Clarita Diet retains the quirky tone of Fresco’s previous output. “There’s a real optimism to the show,” Barrymore said to USA Today. “I don’t want to watch a show about a couple fighting and falling apart, I can’t handle it right now. It’s not heavy, but it’s not lacking in a sort of sweetness, if you will. But it’s also got bite and backbone and balls.”
The big problem is that due to massive zombie fatigue, this could wind up brilliant yet undiscovered. Which would put it in line with Fresco’s other creations. Even if it only lasts one season, at least we’ve got something to sate our appetite while we’re waiting for the $^%%^$ CW to run the ^%$#&^ third season of iZombie. (Where is it already??)

Given that the bread and butter for comic book publisher Zenescope — since its inception — has been taking public domain concepts and turning them into shameless, embarrassing T&A shows, we were expecting their first announcement for 2022 to be a book about a barely dressed female Winnie The Pooh
You might be confused when reading the next big event in Dead By Daylight revolves around Saw, as the franchise already got a Killer and Survivor to represent it. Is a second set on the way? Not really. The spotlight is going back on some previously introduced characters, Killer The
