Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement, the duo behind one of my favorite horror comedies, What We Do in the Shadows, are expanding upon the film's world with television series spin-offs, “Wellington Paranormal“ and "What We Do in the Shadows."
FX celebrates Halloween today by releasing two clips from the "What We Do in the Shadows" series, which follows three vampires who have been roommates for hundreds of years in Staten Island.
Description via Rotten Tomatoes,
“Much like the movie, the series follows three vampires who live together: Laszlo (Matt Berry), Nadja (Natasia Demetriou), and Nandor (Kayvan Novak) — the former two are husband and wife. Also living with them is a fourth vampire named Colin Robinson (Mark Proksch), who’s an “energy vampire.” Instead of blood, he sucks the energy out of his victims by boring them to death with mundane anecdotes and bad jokes. The office is his feeding ground, but his powers also work on his vampire roomies.”
“The main action is put into motion when our central three vampires receive notice that an ancient leader vampire named the Baron is coming to pay them a visit from abroad, purportedly to see how conquering America is going.”
The 10-episode first season of "What We Do in the Shadows" is scheduled to premiere on FX in Spring 2019.
