Netflix is bringing the popular best-selling Lemony Snicket books to the small screen in an eight-episode series next year. You definitely don’t want to watch the teaser trailer for the new series which will be debuting on Friday, January 13th, 2017.
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, Joan Cusack, Malina Weissman and Louis Hynes. The series premieres January 13, 2017 only on Netflix.
As Netflix — or is it Lemony Snicket? — warns: “The world is vast and full of wonders. So on Friday, the 13th of January, please… watch something else.”
