Dead To Me renewed for season 2 at Netflix
Netflix has officially ordered a season 2 for the dark comedy series Dead To Me, starring Golden Globe nominee Christina Applegate (Samantha Who?) and Emmy nominee Linda Cardellini (Mad Men).
Written by Liz Feldman (2 Broke Girls, The Great Indoors), the series follows Jen (Applegate), a widow Hell bent on solving her husband’s hit-and-run murder, and her unlikely friend Judy (Cardellini) an optimistic woman who likewise suffered a tremendous loss. The two bond over, as the trade notes, “bottles of wine, Entenmann’s cookies, and a shared affinity for The Facts of Life,” all the while Judy harbors a secret that could destroy Jen’s life.
Applegate serves as an executive producer on the show, along with Will Ferrell and Adam McKay. The three produce alongside Jessica Elbaum (I’m Sorry) of Gloria Sanchez Productions. Mckay and Ferrell have been involved in creating all kinds of content lately, from HBO’s business drama Succession to CBS All Access’ No Activity. They are also set to work with Netflix on the upcoming musical comedy Eurovision, which will star Ferrell.
The series also stars James Marsden, Ed Asner and Brandon Scott.
Dead to Me is currently available for streaming on Netflix.
