Barrymore and Olyphant will play a couple who are both real estate agents. When Sheila (Barrymore) experiences a shift in her life, it also affects their marriage.

“The genius casting of Timothy and Drew combined with Victor’s unique comedic sensibility will delight, and definitely surprise, our members around the world,” said Cindy Holland of Netflix, per Variety.  The show is created by Victor Fresco, who will also serve as showrunner and writer. The actors are also going to be executive producers of the series.

This is the first TV project for the actress who has done movies all her life since she was five. But Olyphant is a veteran of television, having starred in numerous critically-acclaimed shows like “Justified” and “Deadwood.”

“Santa Clara Diet” is set for outing on Netflix in 2017.
