Ever since Netflix announced it’s intention to pick up Lemony Snicket’s a Series of Unfortunate Events we’ve been overcome with a sense of joyful dread!
Based on the children’s book by Daniel Handler, a movie was released in 2004, starring Jim Carey, Jude Law and Meryl Streep, but was never followed up – leaving viewers with no closure! Until no! Bwahahaha!
The TV adaptation features Neil Patrick Harris as the creepy Count Olaf. Joan Cusack will also appear in the series. Emmy Award winning producer Barry Sonnenfield of The Adams Family is also on board, Variety reports.
The first season of Lemony SNicket’s a Series of Unfortunate Events will consist of eight episodes and premieres, appropriately, on Friday, Jan. 13.
