The first trailer for Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant's Netflix zombie series Santa Clarita Diet has been released. It looks pretty damn good and, hey, when Nathan Fillion makes an appearance, who can complain?
I'm not sure how big of a role he'll have in the series, but it's still awesome to see him in this trailer. Hopefully, he's a series regular.

That said, let's assess the damage.
The synopsis of Bad Kids of Crestview Academy goes like this: "Detention sucks but it's killer fun. It's four years later, and a new group of students has been placed in Saturday detention at the infamous and prestigious Crestview Academy. When Siouxsie, sophomore "undercrust," crashes the party to avenge her sister's death, a Saturday detention reserved for the privileged seniors of Crestview Academy turns into a date in hell. It's not long before a naïve pussycat, gay drug dealer, smokin' hot [Continued ...] »
