Christina Applegate is Set to Star in a New Dark Comedy Netflix Series Called DEAD TO ME
Christina Applegate (Bad Moms, Anchorman) is set to star in and executive produce a new Netflix series called Dead to Me. It's described as being a half-hour dark comedy series that is like a comedic version of HBO's Big Little Lies and it comes from writer Liz Feldman, and producers Will Ferrell and Adam McKay. Here's what we know about the story:
It is about a powerful friendship that blossoms between a tightly wound widow (Applegate) and a free spirit with a shocking secret.
Applegate will play Jen, a poised and put-together woman with a dark sense of humor and an anger problem that she doesn’t necessarily want to deal with. Jen has been struggling to keep it together in the months since her husband was killed in a hit and run.
Dead To Me will mark Applegate's first TV series in the past six years. Netflix has already given in the series a 10-episode first season order and Feldman, who previously worked on 2 Broke Girls, won't only write the series, but will also be its showrunner.
Applegate previously worked with Ferrell and McKay on the Anchorman films and Dead To Me sounds like it will be a great project for all of them to work on together again.
