Netflix's 'A Series of Unfortunate Events' to Air on First Friday the 13th of 2017
Netflix's A Series of Unfortunate Events is all set to air on the first Friday the 13th of 2017. It will be based on the best-selling novel by Daniel Handler (Lemony Snicket).
Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events. The TV series adaptation of this literary classic is all set to air this coming January 13, 2017. What an appropriate day, given that that day is the New Year's first Friday the 13th.
Viewers will see this new Netflix series spearheaded by none other than Patrick Neil Harris. Harris is portraying the villainous Count Olaf, the antagonist to the three Baudelaire children, Violet, Klaus, and Sunny.
Viewers should expect Harris' Count Olaf in his various forms of disguise. The effectiveness of these disguises, however, is questionable as the Baudelaire kids always see through them and the Count's schemes to steal their parents' fortune.
The series will focus on Count Olaf's disguises and schemes with siblings Violet, Klaus, and Sunny foiling them. The series' progression will also reveal more and more about the wild past of the sibling's parents giving viewers something to always look forward to.
The last time viewers saw Count Olaf was in the 2004 film adaptation with Jim Carrey as the Count. Netflix's TV series went into production with Paramount TV a full decade after, in 2014, with Daniel Handler, the author of the book series himself, as executive producer.
Netflix's A Series of Unfortunate Events also stars Patrick Warburton of The Tick fame as the narrator Lemony Snicket, Malina Weissman as Violet, and Louis Hynes as Klaus. Alfre Woodard, Joan Cusack, and Aasif Mandvi join the cast for important roles within the TV series.
Don't forget to mark your calendars for A Series of Unfortunate Events from Netflix. The series will air, suitably enough, on January 13, 2017, a Friday.
