It's not what you eat, it's who you eat. Netflix has released two trailers for its upcoming original series, "Santa Clarita Diet," and kale and quinoa aren't on the menu -- though Kelly and Quinn might be.
In the witty trailers, released Sunday and styled as if they were ads for a real weight-loss regimen, Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant act as if they're presenting a perfectly normal diet.
Until, that is, you catch Barrymore's brag that she can eat "whoever I want," and her noting that she only eats "the foods that deserve it" as she plucks a cube of raw red meat out of a bowl that also contains an eyeball.
In Olyphant's ad, he explains that his wife, Barrymore, feels great and looks good on her new diet, but then confesses to a "kind of intense" moment at the park involving a jerk who was throwing rocks at the ducks. Hey, like she said, he deserved it.
The stars play married real-estate agents Sheila and Joel Hammond, who somehow manage to keep their marriage and business alive after Sheila dies and comes back with a hunger for human flesh. A website, www.santaclaritadiet.com, carries off the theme with testimonials from other, uh, dieters. (Elderly Marla warns, "Watch out world, I'm coming for you!")
The horror-comedy's entire first season arrives on Netflix on February 3. Binge-watching has never been more appropriate.
