Christina Applegate has signed on to star in a new dark comedy series on Netflix titled Dead to Me according to Deadline Hollywood.
Written by Liz Feldman, Dead to Me, which has a 10-episode straight-to-series order, has been described as a comedic Big Little Lies. 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.
