Netflix just added another dark comedy to its catalog, ordering 10-episodes of the half-hour show “Dead to Me” from executive producer Liz Feldman.

The show highlights “a powerful friendship that blossoms between a tightly wound widow and a free spirit with a shocking secret,” according to Netflix.

Feldman, a writer and producer best known for her work on “2 Broke Girls,” wrote the script and will be the executive producer and showrunner on the new show. Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, and Jessica Elbaum of Gloria Sanchez Productions will also serve as executive producers.

“Dead to Me” is produced by CBS Television Studios, where they’re all under current deals. This will be the fourth partnership between CBS and the streaming heavyweight, with “American Vandal,”  “Insatiable,” and the upcoming drama “Unbelievable” already in the works.

This will be Feldman’s first series with Netflix. Aside from “2 Broke Girls,” the CAA-repped writer has been on the writing staff of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” sharing in two Daytime Emmy wins, and created the NBC series “One Big Happy,” which ran for six episodes in 2015.
