Netflix has announced a new multiyear creative partnership with producer Liz Feldman for original series and other projects. Under the agreement, the dark comedy series “Dead to Me” created by Feldman will return to Netflix for a third and final season.
“Liz Feldman is a comedic force who brings her fresh and distinct point of view to every element of the creative process from inception through writing and producing,” Jane Wiseman, Netflix VP of comedy series, said in a statement. “We could not be more excited to expand our relationship with Liz and continue to work with her on ‘Dead to Me’ and future series to come.”
Produced by CBS Television Studios for Netflix, “Dead to Me” stars Christina Applegate as Jen and Linda Cardellini as Judy, a pair of women whose lives become intertwined through grief and murder after Judy and her ex-fiancé, Steve (James Marsden) accidentally kill Jen’s husband in a hit-and-run.
Executive Producers on “Dead to Me” include Feldman, Applegate, Jessica Elbaum, Christie Smith, Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, with Cardellini as co-executive producer.
“From start to finish, ‘Dead to Me’ is exactly the show I wanted to make,” Feldman said in a statement. “And it’s been an incredible gift. Telling a story sprung from grief and loss has stretched me as an artist and healed me as a human. I’ll be forever indebted to my partners in crime, my friends for life, Christina and Linda, and our brilliantly talented writers, cast and crew. I am beyond grateful to Netflix for supporting ‘Dead to Me’ from day one, and I’m thrilled to continue our collaboration.”
