In the wake of the official trailer earlier this week, FX has dropped another new teaser promo for Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement’s “What We Do in the Shadows” TV series, set to premiere on March 27. In the 30-second promo, the Prince of Darkness rises… to change a light bulb. Hey, vampires have to perform mundane tasks like the rest of us.
Set in Staten Island, FX’s “What We Do in the Shadows” series follows three vampires who have been roommates for hundreds and hundreds of years.
Rotten Tomatoes recently detailed 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 main action is put into motion when our central three vampires receive 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.”
Matt Berry, Kayvan Novak, Natasia Demetriou, Harvey Guillen and Mark Proksch star.
