Lemony Snicket is coming to Netflix

Lemony Snicket is back! Lemony Snicket: A Series of Unfortunate Events may not have been the big box office smash they hoped for on the big screen but that does not matter. New life is about to be breathed into this franchise.

Behind the revival are True Blood showrunner Mark Hudis and director Barry Sonnenfeld,  Hudis will serve as showrunner and exec producer of the series, while Sonnenfeld will direct and exec produce. Lemony Snicket creator Daniel Handler is also an exec producer for Paramount Television, which produced the 2004 feature rendition starring Jim Carrey in 2004.

Netflix billed the series as having multigenerational appeal to kids and parents when it announced the acquisition of the property in November. The “Unfortunate Events” series revolves around a trio of orphans who encounter the villainous Count Olaf and a host of other obstacles as they search for their rightful family fortune and the truth about their parents’ death. The book series has sold more than 65 million copies since its debut in 1999.

There’s no word yet about a production timetable for the series.
