Playing EXCLUSIVE: Drew Barrymore Has a Taste for Human Flesh in New Netflix Show, 'The Santa Clarita Diet'

Drew Barrymore shows a side of herself we've never seen before in The Santa Clarita Diet, and ET has an exclusive look at the upcoming Netflix series.

In the comedy, Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant play husband and wife realtors Joel and Sheila, who live normal lives with their daughter, Abby (Liv Hewson), in the Los Angeles suburb of Santa Clarita. When a mysterious illness turns Sheila from a working mom into an undead cannibal, their day-to-day becomes much livelier.

"I do like the way that I feel," Sheila says in one scene. "I have endless energy and I sleep two hours a night. I get so much done."

"You eat people," Joel clarifies.

"I know, but I'm so much more confident," Sheila answers. "I can parallel park in one move now."

Sheila's trick to keeping her conscious clean is only killing bad people.

"There's bite," Barrymore says in a behind-the-scenes clip. "It's fun."

In real life, Barrymore and ex-husband Will Kopelman are parents to 4-year-old daughter Olive and 2-year-old daughter Frankie, who will most likely not be allowed to see the show for a long time.

The Santa Clarita Diet begins streaming Feb. 3 on Netflix.
