In recent years, there have been an excessive amount of films and TV shows that were undead or zombie-themed. The most noticeable films are the sci-fi horror drama 28 Days Later and the horror comedy Shaun of the Dead and the most popular zombie TV series being the horror drama The Walking Dead. Netflix’s half-hour horror comedy, Santa Clarita Diet, brings an alternative spin to the zombie themed premise and also presents itself as an absurdist family sitcom that is highly aware how free they are from the traditional constraints of network television.
