The original film took the form of a mockumentary about four vampires who live in Australia.
This American venture is apparently a different project than the TV series slated to run later this year in New Zealand, where the film was made. Clement and Waititi, creators of the HBO hit series Flight of the Conchords, co-wrote, co-directed, and co-star in this hilarious send-up in which an endearingly unhip quartet of friends reveal to us or, rather, to the documentary crew that's filming them, the details of their daily-make that nightly-routine. The comedy will be produced in-house at FX Productions.
Other executive producers of the series aside from Waititi and Clement are Eli Bush (Ladybird), Scott Rudin (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), Paul Simms (Atlanta), and Garrett Basch (The Night Of).
German Social Democrats Say 'Yes' to Coalition Talks With Merkel
Nahles, who heads the SPD parliamentary group, lambasted those who opposed coalition talks for seven whole minutes. Previous attempts by the chancellor to join with other German political parties in a governing coalition failed.
Novak will be Nandor, the head of the house, while Toast Of London's Berry is Lazslo, the goofy flatmate. However, when he spoke about the long-rumored project a year ago, Waititi suggested that an idea was to essentially do a TV show version of the film but set it in the United States. It's unclear if Clement and Waititi will also have an on-screen role. They struggle to keep up with their strict diet and keep up to speed with the latest trends in technology.
The trailer for the horror comedy film What We Do in the Shadows will give viewers an idea about the context of the TV reboot.
Waititi also announced that a TV show called Paranormal Event Response Unit was in the works, focusing on the inept cops that featured in the film.
