The premise of the series involves the Hammonds, who are an upper middle class family, who have just moved to a new house in Santa Clarita, California and are both realtors. Their teenage daughter, Abby, ends up becoming friends with nerdy next door neighbor, Eric Bemis, who is the son of party-girl Lisa Palmer, and the stepson of a dominating county sheriff named Dan Palmer. While showing a host, Sheila finds herself violently projectile vomiting. The end result of this is that she inexplicably becomes undead, and now craves human flesh to survive. Joel is desperate to maintain a normal family lifestyle as much as possible, but when all other avenues exhaust themselves, he realizes that he must help Sheila stalk and kill innocent victims so she can eat.
