No, we’re not talking about watching the hilarious vampire comedy What We Do in the Shadows at home on TV, cable, or Blu-ray… what we’ve got here is a bona fide television series in the works at FX!
That’s right, kids… Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi are poised to take a bite out of TV! Deadline is reporting that both Clement and Waititi have scored a pilot order from FX for a half-hour comedy series based on the 2014 mockumentary horror film.
Clement is attached as writer and executive producer for the TV adaptation, and Waititi will direct and executive produce. Kayvan Novak, Matt Berry, Natasia Demetriou, and Harvey Guillen are set to star in the FX pilot, which is executive produced by Scott Rudin, Paul Simms, Garrett Basch, and Eli Bush.
Novak will play Nandor, the head vampire of the house. Berry plays Lazslo, the goofiest in the house, the type of vampire that turns into a bat and flies into a wall. Demetriou plays Nadja, the badass female vampire of the house. Guillen is believed to play Nandor’s assistant.
