What We Do In The Shadows releases teaser for FX spring premiere


FX has just released a new teaser for their upcoming spring comedy series What We Do in the Shadows.

Released in 2014. What We Do in the Shadows was a mockumentary that starred and was directed by Jermaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords) and also starred Taika Waititi (the man who directed Thor: Ragnarok).

The mockumentary was about a documentary crew that followed around four vampire roommates who share a flat in New Zealand.

The FX remake of the mockumentary will be a full-fledged television comedy following new vampire roommates, with the location changed to Staten Island.

The What We Do in the Shadows teaser trailer is just one big gag. It has a vampire staring into an ominous glowing light that illuminates his face. Then, the camera moves back and it turns out the light is a birthday cake with WAY too many candles (he is a vampire, so he is old) and they are singing him a song.

When he tries to blow the candles out, it doesn’t work and his puffy shirt catches on fire.

Both Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi are listed as producers and writers for the show but neither man will appear in it.

Matt Berry stars as Laszlo, Kayvan Novak as Nandor and Natasia Demetriou as Nadja. Birth.Death.Movies reports that Clement revealed that there is also a fourth vampire named Colin, played by Mark Proksch, with the power to suck the life out of any room he walks into.

On top of the vampires, there will also likely be werewolves on the show as well (Rhys Darby portrayed the head of a werewolf pack in the mockumentary this was based on). Clement also hinted at a supernatural being that never appeared in the original movie.

Also, just like the original, there will be one major human character in Guillermo, a “familiar” who serves Nandor.

As for the format, FX has ordered a 10-episode first season of What We Do in the Shadows and it will premiere in March 2019 as a half-hour comedy series.
