I have not watched a new Netflix series in its entirety since Master of None. Love didn’t excite me. Flaked seemed like my worst nightmare. And though I watched every episode of Fuller House in a single afternoon, it counts more as lost time than actual television viewing. One show I will watch, however, is Santa Clarita Diet. Announced Friday afternoon, the “romantic comedy series” stars Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant as—does it even matter? No.

But for those interested, here’s Entertainment Weekly’s description:

The two household-name actors will topline Santa Clarita Diet, about husband-and-wife realtors leading “vaguely discontented lives” in the L.A. suburb of Santa Clarita, until Barrymore’s character goes through a dramatic change “sending both their lives down a road of death and destruction – but in a good way.”


This show could be about Drew Barrymore doing anything and I’d watch. Put her on an offshore oil rig. Throw her into a school and make her the overwhelmed principal. Cast her in a spinoff of The Big Bang Theory called String Theory, and make her catchphrase “WOMPALOONY!” and I would gladly give the entire first season a watch.

Santa Clarita Diet premieres in 2017. Nothing else about it is important.
