On the anniversary of the series premiere of Dead to Me (May 3, 2019), Netflix has ordered a new series from the show’s creator, Liz Feldman, with the greenlight of No Good Deed.
No Good Deed is a half-hour, dark comedy that follows three very different families vying to buy the very same 1920s Spanish-style villa that they think will solve all their problems. But as the sellers have already discovered, sometimes the home of your dreams can be a total nightmare.
“No Good Deed was inspired by my many late nights during the early pandemic maniacally searching Zillow listings for a way out of my house,” said Feldman.
“I’m endlessly grateful to Netflix for being such a supportive, creative home and for continuing to allow me to turn my crippling anxiety into entertainment.”
Liz Feldman created the comedy series and will also serve as an executive producer. Netflix has an overall multi-year deal with Feldman.
No Good Deed executive producers also include Will Ferrell, Jessica Elbaum, and Brittney Segal for Gloria Sanchez Productions, Christie Smith, and Silver Tree. Silver Tree will direct the No Good Deed pilot, along with additional episodes.
Netflix also announced that Feldman’s series Dead to Me will premiere its third and final season this fall. “No good Liz Feldman project can go unproduced,” said Tracey Pakosta, Head of Comedy at Netflix.
“She has an unmatched eye for dark comedy. And as we enter the final season of the brilliant Dead to Me, we are thrilled to continue our partnership with No Good Deed.”
Dead to Me, a dark comedy about a powerful friendship that blossoms between a tightly wound widow and a free spirit with a shocking secret, is produced by CBS Television Studios and Gloria Sanchez Productions for Netflix.
The executive producers are Liz Feldman (Showrunner), Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, Jessica Elbaum, Brittany Segal, Christina Applegate, and Christie Smith.
Liz Feldman is an award-winning writer, creator, and producer. Season two of her series Dead to Me, which premiered on May 8, 2020, to much critical and audience acclaim, received four Emmy nominations, including Outstanding Comedy Series.
Feldman won the 2020 Writers Guild Award for Episodic Comedy and was nominated for a Writers Guild Award for New Series on behalf of the show. She was once again nominated for a 2021 Writers Guild Award for Episodic Comedy, and the show received three 2021 SAG Nominations.
