Is Drew Barrymore’s New Show About Cannibalism?

Apparently all the movie stars are jumping on the TV bandwagon since that’s where the real money/stability is. If it works, you have a reliable, ongoing income and can settle in one place for a while – what’s not to love? Drew Barrymore is the latest actor to come down to the small screen to star in a new Netflix show called Santa Clarita Diet alongside Timothy Olyphant. So far so good… but wait – is this show about cannibalism or what?

Jezebel author Bobby Finger picked up on some pretty interesting elements to the press for the show, from an image that features Drew’s character drinking a smoothie full of human fingers, eyes, and blood and includes the text “eat whoever you want.” Yep, cannibalism it is!

Deadline describes the show as follows:

Olyphant and Barrymore star as husband and wife realtors Joel and Sheila in the dark comedy. They’re leading vaguely discontented lives in the L.A. suburb of Santa Clarita with their teenaged daughter Abby (Liv Hewson), until Sheila goes through a dramatic change sending their lives down a road of death and destruction…but in a good way. Skyler Gisondo also stars.

I mean, whatever. Netflix shows tend to be pretty good, though, so it might be awesome.

Will you watch?
