Netflix have recently blessed us with some quality TV and it just gets better. After teasing us with a little trailer (that may or may not be fake) of their upcoming show A Series of Unfortunate Events, fans have finally been given a first real glimpse of How I Met Your Mother’s Neil Patrick Harris as creepy and eccentric character Count Olaf.
You may remember the children’s book series was previously adapted to the big screen in the 2004 film starring Jim Carrey as Count Olaf. That film didn’t seem to be a huge hit with no other sequels being produced afterwards, but this new TV adaptation of the classic 13-book series looks set to be a hit.
The series is currently filming in Vancouver, Canada for a release later this year and as well as Neil Patrick Harris, it will also star Usman Ally, Patrick Warburton, Louise Hynes and Malina Weissman to name a few.
Check out the trailer and the new pictures below:
