Netflix is giving viewers their first official look at Christina Applegate (Anchorman franchise) and Linda Cardellini‘s (Mad Men) dark comedy Dead To Me. Created by Liz Feldman (2 Broke Girls, One Big Happy), the series dives into the painfully unfiltered, weirdly funny waters of grief, loss and forgiveness. Set to premiere on Friday, May 3, Dead To Me is produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay’s Gloria Sanchez Prods. and CBS TV Studios.
Here’s a look at the trailer, along with an official image gallery from Netflix:
Jen (Christina Applegate) is a sardonic widow determined to solve her husband’s recent hit-and-run murder. Judy (Linda Cardellini) is 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.
From creator and executive producer Feldman, Dead to Me stars Applegate (Jen), Cardellini (Judy), James Marsden (Steve), Ed Asner (Abe), and Brandon Scott (Nick).
Jessica Elbaum (Gloria Sanchez Prods.), Christie Smith, and Applegate also serve as executive producers, in addition to McKay and Ferrell for Gloria Sanchez Productions. Dead to Me is produced by CBS Television Studios for Netflix.
