5. Dead to Me

Premiere Date: May 3, 2019

Season: 1 (10 episodes)

Dead to Me was first announced last spring when it was given a series order by Netflix. The dark comedy series is created by Liz Feldman who is best known for her work on 2 Broke Girls and One Big Happy. The series is notably executive produced by Adam McKay and Will Ferrell.

The series follows two very different women who form a friendship after meeting at a support group. Jen is a hardened widow who is still reeling from the death of her husband who was killed in a hit-and-run. Then there is Judy, a free-spirited woman who also recently lost someone but she also holds a major secret. The secret could change her life forever so she tries to hide it from her new friend.

The role of Jen is played by Christina Applegate while Linda Cardellini is portraying the role of Judy. Cardellini is certainly no stranger to Netflix original series, having previously starred in the hit series Bloodline for three seasons. The rest of the cast includes Max Jenkins, Luke Roessler, James Marsden, Ed Asner, and Sam McCarthy.

The first trailer of Dead to Me was recently released and gave viewers a better look at the unlikely friendship between Jen and Judy. The series will undoubtedly be a hit considering the star power. We advise adding it to your watch list this spring as it will probably have everyone talking.
