BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., March 19 (UPI) -- Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant are to star in a single-camera comedy series called Santa Clarita Diet, Netflix announced.

Created and written by Victor Fresco, the show is expected to premiere in 2017.

Olyphant and Barrymore will play married realtors "leading vaguely discontented lives in the L.A. suburb of Santa Clarita, until Sheila goes through a dramatic change sending both their lives down a road of death and destruction... but in a good way," a synopsis teased.

"The genius casting of Timothy and Drew combined with Victor's unique comedic sensibility will delight, and definitely surprise, our members around the world," Cindy Holland, Netflix's vice president of original content, said in a statement Friday.
