We were delighted to find out last year that one of the best vampire films ever created, Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement’s What We Do in the Shadows, would be receiving a television series adaptation. Simply titiled "What We Do in the Shadows," the 10-episode first season will premiere on FX on March 29th, and we’ve got the first trailer to share with you today!
The series comes from writer Clement and director Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok), and looks to perfectly capture the essence of the film!
"Set in New York City, What We Do in the Shadows follows three vampires who have been roommates for hundreds and hundreds of years."
Rotten Tomatoes detailed the series...
“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.”
Jemaine Clement, Taika Waititi and Paul Simms are Executive Producers with Scott Rudin, Eli Bush, and Garrett Basch.
