Netflix is putting a comedy series called Santa Clarita Diet into production with stars Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant, Variety reports.

Santa Clarita Diet will follow Joel (Olyphant) and Sheila (Barrymore), husband-and-wife realtors in the titular Los Angeles suburb, who live a boring existence until Sheila goes through a change that sends "both their lives down a road of death and destruction -- but in a good way," according to Variety.

Santa Clarita Diet comes from veteran TV creator Victor Fresco, who also created Better Off Ted, Andy Richter Controls the Universe and Sean Saves the World. It's scheduled to arrive in 2017.

Olyphant is best known for serious roles in Justified and Deadwood, but he has comedy chops as well, as you can see in this exclusive Justified gag reel.
