Netflix has released the official Dead To Me trailer, starring Golden Globe nominee Christina Applegate (Samantha Who?) and Emmy nominee Linda Cardellini (Mad Men) in their latest dark comedy series.
Created by Liz Feldman, Dead To Me centers on Jen (Applegate), a sardonic widow determined to solve her husband’s recent hit-and-run murder, and Judy (Cardellini) an optimistic free spirit who’s recently suffered her own tragic loss.
When the two women meet at a support group, they become unlikely friends, despite their polar-opposite personalities. But as they bond over bottles of wine, Entenmann’s cookies, and a shared affinity for The Facts of Life, Judy desperately tries to shield Jen from a shocking secret that could destroy her life as she knows it.
The dark comedy was written by Liz Feldman (2 Broke Girls, The Great Indoors). Applegate will also serve as an executive producer on the show, along with Will Ferrell and Adam McKay. The three will produce along with Jessica Elbaum (I’m Sorry) of Gloria Sanchez Productions.
The show also stars James Marsden (Steve), Ed Asner (Abe) and Brandon Scott (Nick). Dead to Me will arrive on Netflix on May 3, just in time for some summertime. Check out the trailer below.
