 Dead to Me stars

Review of "Dead to Me" 5/5/19 by Suzanne
Season One airs on Netflix

I just love this series and plan to watch the rest of it because it's just so good. Christina Applegate plays Jen, a woman whose husband died, and she's trying to deal with that as well as raise two kids. She meets another woman, Judy (Linda Cardelini) at a grief help group who is very friendly. The two become very close. You won't expect what happens. It has many surprising shocks, and twists and turns. It's a really good suspense drama. The acting is fantastic, too.

Ed Asner plays an older friend of Judy's, and James Marsden plays another person in her life. I can't really tell you anything more about it without giving away the great plot. This is a "Don't Miss!" show. Seriously. The grief part of the show is only one part of it. It's not like the show Ricky Gervais show "After Life." Watch it because you won't be sorry!


Jen (Christina Applegate) is a sardonic widow determined to solve her husband’s recent hit-and-run murder. Judy (Linda Cardellini) is an optimistic free spirit who’s recently suffered her own tragic loss. When the two women meet at a support group, they become unlikely friends despite their polar-opposite personalities. But as they bond over bottles of wine, Entenmann’s cookies and a shared affinity for The Facts of Life, Judy desperately tries to shield Jen from a shocking secret that could destroy her life as she knows it. DEAD TO ME, created by Liz Feldman (2 Broke Girls, One Big Happy), is an addictive dark comedy that dives into the painfully unfiltered, weirdly funny waters of grief, loss and forgiveness.

From creator and executive producer Liz Feldman, Dead to Me stars Christina Applegate (Jen), Linda Cardellini (Judy), James Marsden (Steve), Ed Asner (Abe) and Brandon Scott (Nick). Jessica Elbaum (Gloria Sanchez Prods.), Christie Smith and Christina Applegate also serve as executive producers, in addition to Adam McKay and Will Ferrell for Gloria Sanchez Productions. Dead to Me is produced by CBS Television Studios for Netflix.
