Misery loves company, as the saying goes, and in Netflix's black comedy "Dead to Me," there's plenty of both.
Christina Applegate stars as Jen, a sardonic widow whose husband recently died in a hit-and-run. She meets free spirit Judy (Cardellini), who is grieving her fiancé, at a support group. Despite their opposite personalities, they bond over wine and late night phone chats.
But after Judy moves into the guesthouse, Jen starts to realize her new BFF isn't who she seems.
With Jen is acting as a "white wine vigilante" searching for the perpetrator of her husband's hit-and-run," it's easy to guess what Jen's "shocking secret" might be. Or not. Maybe this platonic love story has a happy ending.
The series is created by Liz Feldman ("2 Broke Girls") and also stars James Marsden and Ed Asner.
"Dead to Me" premieres May 3 on Netflix.
