Waiting to get a glimpse of What We Do in the Shadows really sucks. But just in time for Halloween, the first footage of the FX vampire comedy series is here. In the just-released teasers, fans can finally get a glimpse of the ancient vampire roommates coexisting in the modern world of Staten Island. The cast includes Matt Berry, Kayvan Novak, Natasia Demetriou, Harvey Guillen and Mark Proksch.
What We Do in the Shadows is based on the 2014 feature film from Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, who will both be executive producers along with Paul Simms, Scott Rudin, Eli Bush and Garrett Basch.
Clement, Waititi and Simms recently appeared at New York Comic Con to talk about bringing the hit film, which was set in New Zealand, to the small screen.
"We wanted the idea that the vampires had been sent maybe 200 years ago, to conquer America, but had sort of lost their way and forgotten," Simms revealed during the What We Do in the Shadows panel. "They’d gotten to New York, and that’s where the boat dropped them off, and they never went any farther and before they knew it, a lot of time had passed."
