Drew Barrymore is officially headed back to the small screen. Netflix has given the green light to a new comedy series starring Barrymore and Justified’s Timothy Olyphant, Variety reports. And in true Netflix fashion, the online-streaming network has already got us nodding our heads in excitement.
The Netflix original, titled Santa Clarita Diet, follows the story of Sheila (Barrymore) and Joe (Olyphant), married real estate agents leading bored and unhappy lives in L.A.’s Santa Clarita suburb. That is until a dramatic life change sends them down a crazy roller coaster.
Victor Fresno, the creative mind behind My Name Is Earl and Mad About You, will serve as the show runner.
And if we are to expect Barrymore's usual charm, humor, and quirkiness, then this show is definitely one to look forward to. In the meantime, let’s take a look back at some of Barrymore’s most beloved comedy roles.
