Netflix has today announced the premiere date for the upcoming original dark comedy series Dead to Me starring Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini.

All 10 episodes of the first season will be available on Friday, May 3.

Jen (Applegate) is a sardonic widow determined to solve her husband's recent hit-and-run murder. Judy (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 change her life as she knows it.

In addition to Applegate and Cardellini, the cast also includes James Marsden, Brandon Scott, Max Jenkins, Sam McCarthy, Luke Roessler and Ed Asner. 

Liz Feldman created the series. She executive produces with Applegate, Jessica Elbaum, Christie Smith, Adam McKay, Will Ferrell and director Amy York Rubin. CBS Television Studios and Gloria Sanchez Productions produce for Netflix.
