Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement’s comedy about a trio of vampires having a hard time adjusting to modern life is being translated into a series for FX – and it looks awesome.
The US may not be getting Wellington Paranormal just yet, but We are getting a new series on FX with more vampire hijinks. Clement and Waititi are producing, and they directed the pilot episode. More on the new show and its stars from 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.
No exact release date has been set, but it’s set to air next spring. Here’s a a preview…
Everyone should wear capes like this to go grocery shopping, not just vampires.
