Funny Full Trailer for FX's WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS Series From Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement
FX has released a hilarious full trailer for Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement’s upcoming FX vampire comedy series What We Do In The Shadows. The trailer gives us our best look yet at the comedy and the characters that will fill it. As you’ll see, there are some pretty funny characters that are being introduced.
The series is based on the 2014 mokumentary film of the same, but this series follows a different group of vampires living together in Staten Island and the other boroughs. None of the characters from the movie will appear in the series, but it still looks like it’ll be just as funny.
Here’s a synopsis that was released for 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 series is also said to focus on the vampires receiving 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.”
The series also stars Harvey Guillen (The Internship), Doug Jones (The Shape of Water), Beanie Feldstein (Lady Bird), and Jake McDorman.
What We Do in the Shadows premieres on March 27th, 2019.
