Netflix's new dark comedy is bringing a whole new meaning to the phrase "misery loves company." In Dead to Me, Christina Applegate stars as Jen, a cynical widow who's determined to solve the hit-and-run murder of her husband in unorthodox ways. When she joins a support group, she meets Judy (Linda Cardellini), a free spirit brimming with optimism despite suffering the recent loss of her fiancé, and the pair strike up an unlikely friendship.

Unfortunately, Judy is hiding a secret that could destroy both her and Jen's lives, which all comes bubbling to the surface with the arrival of a man from her past (James Marsden). Ed Asner and Brandon Scott also star, and the show has Applegate on board as an executive producer alongside Adam McKay and Will Ferrell. Watch the trailer for the dark comedy created by 2 Broke Girls' Liz Feldman above before it arrives on Netflix on May 3.
