Doing It for Santa Clarita

Jeez. How did we get here?


Drew Barrymore is headed to the small/stream screen.

Yes. Golden Globe winner Drew friggin’ Barrymore, former like, legit movie star, is getting downsized. A job is a job, but this trend we’re seeing, where movie stars are having to turn to ghost-written books and lifestyle platforms and – shudder – TV,’s a massive shift in paradigm.

This would never have happened 10 years ago. Thanks, short(er) attention spans and making everybody a star and offering unlimited options!

But I rant.

Barrymore is set to co-produce and co-star with Emmy nominee Timothy Olyphant (FX’s Justified) on Santa Clarita Diet, a new single-cam comedy that will premiere on Netflix next year. Olyphant and Barrymore will play a married couple living somewhat discontentedly in Santa Clarita, the Los Angeles ’burb, until she undergoes a dramatic change that sends them both a path of destruction and death, a good way!

Well consider me curious now.
