'Santa Clarita Diet' Trailer: Watch Drew Barrymore Munch on Human Flesh

Drew Barrymore makes a welcome return to television with Netflix's new series, Santa Clarita Diet. The trailer for the dark comedy finds the actress diving into some bloody cannibalistic activities—yes, she's a human-eating zombie.

It seems to play out as your typical Los Angeles suburban family show, with Barrymore (who plays Sheila) and Justified's Timothy Olyphant (Joel) making a living in real estate. Somehow Sheila turns into a member of the undead, which gives her more confidence and energy. Just as long as she doesn't eat her own family members, things will be fine!

Santa Clarita Diet, created by Victor Fresco (Better Off Ted), is Barrymore's first TV role since her stint as Lana Lockhart on Family Guy and guest appearance on Bravo's Odd Mom Out. The actress' last film was the 2015 British romantic-comedy Miss You Already. Look out for the Netflix series' worldwide premiere on Feb. 3.
