The new Weight Watchers is bloody effective.

Last night during the Golden Globe Awards, Netflix dropped the first teaser for their upcoming original series, Santa Clarita Diet.  Starring Drew Barrymore and Timothy OlyphantSanta Clarita Diet will be a horror-comedy about a well-to-do couple harboring a deadly secret:

Sheila and Joel, a married couple, are real estate agents in Santa Clarita, California. When Sheila dies, their lives take a dark turn.

The first teaser features Barrymore promoting a new diet that’s been giving her wonderful results.  She feels younger, sexier, and more energetic.  The first half of the teaser is virtually indistinguishable from every other celebrity-endorsed diet ad.  The second half, however, takes a sinister turn:

There’s also a second teaser, featuring Olyphant, again taking the form of a diet testimonial:

Santa Clarita Diet was created by Victor Fresco and directed by Ruben Fleischer, Ken Kwapis, and Marc Buckland.  It premieres on Netflix next month, on February 3rd.  I’ll be tuning in.  Will you?
