Two trailers into the upcoming Netflix series Lemony Snicket’s a Series of Unfortunate Events, we’re starting to get a pretty good feel for the vibe of the series and it definitely seems to hold more promise than the Jim Carey adaptation. Also, this one has Don Johnson. I wasn’t expecting that.
One thing is for sure, this show is going to be one of the biggest treats for fans of Neil Patrick Harris since Doctor Horrible.
Based on the internationally best-selling series of books by Lemony Snicket (aka Daniel Handler) and starring Emmy and Tony Award winner Neil Patrick Harris, Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events recounts the tragic tale of the Baudelaire orphans — Violet, Klaus, and Sunny – whose evil guardian Count Olaf will stop at nothing to get his hands on their inheritance. The siblings must outsmart Olaf at every turn, foiling his many devious plans and disguises, in order to discover clues to their parents’ mysterious death. The eight-episode series is a Netflix original production, executive produced by Emmy Award winner Barry Sonnenfeld and Daniel Handler, and also stars Patrick Warburton (Lemony Snicket), Joan Cusack (Justice Strauss), Malina Weissman (Violet Baudelaire) and Louis Hynes (Klaus Baudelaire). The series premieres January 13, 2017 only on Netflix.
