Based on the 2014 vampire mockumentary film of the same name, What We Do in the Shadows centers around three old school vampires, Nandor, Laszlo, and Nadja who live together at Staten Island. With the help of Nandor’s loyal familiar, Guillermo, they try their best to connect with the modern world and blend in with other humans and supernatural beings.
The series stars Kayvan Novak, Matt Berry, Natasia Demetriou, Harvey Guillen, and Mark Proksch. It has already featured appearances from Beanie Feldstein, Nick Kroll, Vanessa Bayer, Kristen Schaal, Dave Bautista, Tilda Swinton, Evan Rachel Wood, Wesley Snipes, Mark Hamill, Craig Robinson, and more.
The series is written and executive-produced by Taika Waititi and Jermaine Clement. It stars Matt Berry (The IT Crowd), Kayvan Novak (Early Man), Natasia Demetriou (Year Friends), and Harvey Guillen (The Magicians).
The original film starred Taika Waititi, Clement, Jonathan Brugh, and Ben Fransham, where it followed a group of vampires who live together in modern-day Wellington, New Zealand as they go through the mundane tasks of everyday life and of rooming with other people, as well as bringing in a vampire (Cori Gonzalez-Macuer) just turned by the group. It earned rave reviews from critics upon release and quickly became an international cult classic, propelling Waititi and Clement even further into the spotlight as actors, writers, and directors.
