'Suits' Enlists Jay Harrington for Multi-Episode Arc (Exclusive)

Suits viewers who have long awaited Harvey (Gabriel Macht) and Donna (Sarah Rafferty) finally getting together are about to have another little hiccup to deal with, this time in the form of Jay Harrington.

The Better Off Ted and Coupling actor is set for a two-episode arc on the USA drama as Mark Meadows, Donna's ex-boyfriend. Given Harvey's recent relationship with his former shrink, Paula (Christina Cole), this season and the lengths he's gone to in order to hide that relationship from Donna, it seems as though Mark's reappearance will come at quite the inconvenient time for the co-workers.

Santa Clarita Diet season 2 confirmed by Netflix

Joseph Baxter Mar 30, 2017

Santa Clarita Diet season 2 is a go at Netflix with a confirmed renewal of the horror-comedy series.

Netflix won't be falling off the wagon with Santa Clarita Diet. The horror-comedy series, unveiled earlier this year with a series of conceptual promos, may have arrived as a bizarre and random genre amalgam of irreverent comedies with the ubiquitous trope of zombies, but it has apparently managed to make enough of a quantifiable impression with streaming audiences to justify the greenlighting of a second helping.

Netflix Renews ‘Santa Clarita Diet’ for Season 2
Netflix has renewed dark comedy “Santa Clarita Diet” for a second season. The streaming juggernaut made the announcement, which you can watch above, via YouTube. Season 2 will premiere in 2018.

Santa Clarita Diet” stars Timothy Olyphant and Drew Barrymore as suburbanite real estate agents Joel and Sheila, who stuck in a bit of a rut until Sheila starts undergoing some changes that leave her craving human flesh. But while Sheila is different from the woman Joel married, the two are committed to making their marriage work, even if that means committing various murders to sate Sheila’s new undead desires. Liv Hewson also stars as Joel and Sheila’s daughter Abby, and Skyler Gisondo is boy-next-door Eric.

As Variety‘s Sonia Saraiya wrote in her review, “What is genuinely great about ‘Santa Clarita Diet’ is just how surprising each plot development is. Because it is unafraid to dabble in gore, murder, or

The time has come. Netflix has announced the titles it's pulling from its catalog in April, and it's a staggering list.

A Handy Guide to Amazon’s Trash Pilots

Are these new pilots from Amazon trash? Of course they are! Here’s a guide.Just Robb Stark over here, wearin’ shades in outer space

Crowds may not be able to fund things, but they can give opinions. Or, at the very least, that’s been the idea behind Amazon’s occasional Pilot Season, generating enthusiasm for their programming by giving ordinary folk like yourself the opportunity to watch pilots and say, gee, this blows and vote them a big n’ meaningful thumbs down. Last year, they took everything, so it might just be a load of promotional nonsense. But it might not.

So, what’s hip in this line of potential programing? Once canceled TV-hands like Steve Dildarian and Amy Sherman-Palladino return with their latest attempts to enthuse audience with binge-worthy hours of spectacle and movie men like James Ponsoldt and Kevin Macdonald try to get into this golden age of TV they’ve been hearing

‘Santa Clarita Diet’: Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant on the ‘Red Ball’ and Other Secrets of the Netflix Comedy
[Spoilers for “Santa Clarita Diet” Season 1 below.]

For the record, Drew Barrymore appreciates a good zombie pun — especially in the context of discussing “Santa Clarita Diet,” the Netflix comedy created by Victor Fresco (“Better Off Ted”).

The pun wasn’t intentional on IndieWire’s part; we’d simply asked Fresco how “fleshed out” the mythology for his series during last week’s press day in New York. The series, after all, might be easily described as a zombie show, but those who have seen it know that there’s more to the mystery that transforms Sheila (Barrymore) from the subdued wife and partner of Joel (Timothy Olyphant) into a flesh-craving member of the undead.

How Drew Barrymore's Gore-Filled Zombie Sitcom Became 1 of TV's Most Relatable New Shows

Drew Barrymore is into werewolves. In a small, dimly lit hotel room in New York City surrounded by a group of reporters, she brushes her perfect California-girl beach waves over one plaid-shirted shoulder and smiles while revealing her preference. "Something about a werewolf gets me hot," she laughs. "Sorry, that came out wrong." It's a sentiment that might sound bizarre coming from any other actress, but much like everything else that comes tumbling out of Barrymore's mouth, it's utterly and disarmingly charming. A similar thing can be said about her new Netflix show, Santa Clarita Diet, which somehow transforms a seemingly ridiculous story about a woman who turns into a zombie (of sorts) into a delightful, incredibly disgusting, and feminist half-hour of television. Sitting at the room's small table, Barrymore is flanked by the show's creator, Victor Fresco, and her onscreen husband, Timothy Olyphant, who is more of a vampire guy himself,

'Santa Clarita Diet' Creator on Zombie Comedies, Drew Barrymore and Mistaking Fake Body Parts for Real Ones

Netflix's newest series Santa Clarita Diet stars Drew Barrymore as a suburban realtor who turns in a zombie.

The comedy hails from Victor Fresco, who has spent the majority of his career working in broadcast television on shows like Better Off Ted and Andy Richter Controls the Universe. But the veteran writer-producer decided to jump from network to streaming with his latest creation.

"My agent had advised me that all of his clients working outside of networks are happier," Fresco tells The Hollywood Reporter. "So I thought, let's see what happens."

‘Santa Clarita Diet’ Review: Drew Barrymore Bites Off More Than She Can Chew in a Skin-Deep Netflix Comedy

‘Santa Clarita Diet’ Review: Drew Barrymore Bites Off More Than She Can Chew in a Skin-Deep Netflix Comedy
On the surface, “Santa Clarita Diet” should provide a lot for fans to talk about. It’s Drew Barrymore’s first TV show as a series regular. It’s Timothy Olyphant’s first starring role since “Justified” wrapped (and his first time leading a comedy, following a great “Grinder” guest arc). And it’s a Netflix comedy with an eye-opening, jaw-dropping, holy-mother of a twist — right off the bat!

But creator Victor Fresco’s two-time track record for cult favorites cut down too quickly (“Better Off Ted” and “Andy Richter Controls the Universe”) falls short of reaching the trifecta. Even if “Santa Clarita Diet” runs 10 seasons, it would have to change drastically to merit any favored status — cult or otherwise. The story of a married couple who are realtors by day and, well, not realtors by night is far too flawed — in its comedic sensibilities, in its rushed rhythms, and
