‘Santa Clarita Diet’

‘Santa Clarita Diet’ is a Victor Fresco-created horror comedy streaming television series starring actors Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant. Fresco, along with Barrymore, Olyphant, Aaron Kaplan, Tracy Katsky, Chris Miller, Ember Truesdell, and Ruben Fleischer, serves as showrunner and executive producer. The series follows Joel and Sheila Hammond, a husband-and-wife real estate team whose mundane lives are turned upside down when Sheila begins to show signs of being a zombie. Sheila's befuddled family tries to find a cure for her illness while dealing with the consequences, such as her newfound desire for human flesh and a radically altered personality that is more primal and impulsive.

‘The Walking Dead’

‘The Walking Dead’ is an American post-apocalyptic horror television series based on Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard's comic book series of the same name, which together form the core of ‘The Walking Dead’ franchise. The show stars a large ensemble cast as survivors of a zombie apocalypse who are trying to stay alive while being attacked by zombies known as 'walkers.' With the fall of modern civilization, however, these survivors are forced to interact with other human survivors who have formed groups and communities with their own set of laws and morals, which can lead to open, hostile conflict.

‘Ash vs. Evil Dead’

Filmmakers Sam Raimi, Ivan Raimi, and Tom Spezialy created the American comedy horror television series ‘Ash vs Evil Dead’. It's set in Sam Raimi's ‘Evil Dead’ universe, and Bruce Campbell reprises his role as Ash Williams from the first three films. The series takes place roughly 30 years after the events of the first three ‘Evil Dead’ films, and it serves as a continuation of that trilogy. Ash Williams works as a stock boy at the ‘Value Stop’. Pablo, his friend, and Kelly, the object of Pablo's affections, both work at the store. Since returning from 1300 AD at the end of ‘Army of Darkness’, Ash appears to have done very little with his life, and he begins the series living in a trailer and drinking alone in bars. However, Ash will soon have to abandon his mundane existence and reclaim his role as a hero by taking up arms and confronting the titular ‘Evil Dead’. Pablo and Kelly make the decision to join him on his mission to save humanity.

It follows the exploits of Olivia Liv Moore (Rose McIver), a Seattle Police Department medical examiner who assists in the investigation of murders by eating the victims' brains and temporarily inheriting their memories and personalities.
