BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Nov. 4 (UPI) — Netflix has released a minute-long teaser for its upcoming eight-part adaptation of the iconic “Series of Unfortunate Events” novels.

The clip offers a first look at Emmy and Tony Award-winner Neil Patrick Harris as the nefarious Count Olaf.

“‘A Series of Unfortunate Events’ recounts the tragic tale of the Baudelaire orphans — Violet, Klaus and Sunny – whose evil guardian Count Olaf will stop at nothing to get his hands on their inheritance. The siblings must outsmart Olaf at every turn, foiling his many devious plans and disguises, in order to discover clues to their parents’ mysterious death,” says a synopsis for the show, which is to begin streaming Jan. 13.

Patrick Warburton, Joan Cusack, Malina Weissman and Louis Hynes co-star.

Well, this is unfortunate. @ActuallyNPH reveals himself as the truly vile Count Olaf.
