Skyler Gisondo (Vacation) has booked a series regular role opposite Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant in Santa Clarita Diet, Netflix’s upcoming single-camera comedy series from creator Victor Fresco, Aaron Kaplan’s Kapital Entertainment and Tracy Katsky’s Kapital-based KatCo, which is set for a 2017 debut.
In Santa Clarita Diet, Joel (Olyphant) and Sheila ( Barrymore) are husband and wife realtors leading vaguely discontented lives in the L.A. suburb of Santa Clarita, until Sheila goes through a dramatic change sending both their lives down a road of death and destruction…but in a good way.
Gisondo will play Eric, Sheila (Barrymore) and Joel’s (Olyphant) sweet, awkward teenage neighbor, whose love of science and the paranormal is rivaled only by his love for their daughter Abby.
Gisondo can currently be seen in Sean Nalaboff’s dramedy Hard Sell and will next be seen opposite Bruce Dern and Olivia Holt in Eric Stoltz’s Class Rank. Gisondo co-starred in New Line’s Vacation with Ed Helms and Christina Applegate and also appeared opposite Ben Stiller in Fox’s Night of the Museum: Secret of the Tomb. Gisondo is repped by Paradigm, Untitled, and Jackoway Tyerman.
