FX has released a new teaser trailer for its upcoming vampire comedy ‘What We Do In The Shadows’. The series is based on the 2014 movie of the same name, directed by and starring ‘Thor Ragnarok’s Taika Waititi and ‘Legion’s Jemaine Clement. Last summer, Waititi and Clement executive produced New Zealand mockumentary ‘Wellington Paranormal’, another spin-off from ‘What We Do In The Shadows’. Clement directed four of the six episodes, and it has been renewed for a second season.
Waititi and Clement are also executive-producing the US series, with Waititi directing an undisclosed number of episodes. The first season will be comprised of 10 episodes. Kayvan Novak, Matt Berry, Natasia Demetriou, and Harvey Guillen star, with Doug Jones, Beanie Feldstein, Jake McDorman, and Mark Proksch in recurring roles.
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.

Here is a lengthier synopsis for 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.
