They play real estate agents in Santa Clarita, California Drew Barrymore’s character Sheela goes through a transformation becoming a zombie that feeds on human flesh.

Arrested Development follows the formerly wealthy and dysfunctional Bluth family in Newport Beach, California, it features a great ensemble cast and is one of my favorite comedy shows of all time. All four seasons are currently on Netflix and there’s good news, Netflix has ordered a fifth season which will premiere in 2018.
