Christina Applegate's Netflix show "Dead To Me" might be her most personal role yet

When asked about what attracted her to this role, Christina said this:
It literally took them like dragging me out of my semi-retirement, because I was very happy with my kind of not showering life and doing what I want, and just raising my daughter. So, what was it? It was a lot of things. It was really a unique premise and show, and I had known [creator and showrunner] Liz Feldman (2 Broke Girls) and really loved her as a human being. I feel like if I'm going to be doing anything, if you're going to take me away from my kids for three months, it better be with an amazing group of people that are of quality and are kind, smart and interesting. I read the script and immediately I thought they wanted me for Judy. I was like, "What a great character, it's a little bit less work. I don't need to be the star. I don't want to be star of anything." And Liz was like, "Oh no, you're not a Judy, you're a Jen." How do I take that? "You are a Jen." Like so, I'm an angry drunk? And then I was like, "Oh, you know what, you're right. This is totally me."
