We get a first look at Catherine O’Hara and Joan Cusack’s characters in Netflix’s A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS.
Writer Daniel Handler, a.k.a. Lemony Snicket, revealed two images from the upcoming new Netflix show that’s based on his A Series of Unfortunate Events books.
The series stars Neil Patrick Harris as Count Olaf, the sinister guardian of the orphaned Baudelaire children. Justice Strauss (Cusack) is Olaf’s neighbor; the character debuts in the first book, The Bad Beginning, and instantly becomes a favorite of young Violet, Klaus, and Sunny.
Meanwhile, Dr. Orwell (O’Hara) does more harm than good to the orphans. The optometrist, who debuts in The Miserable Mill (the fourth book), has several tricks up her sleeve, even hypnotizing one of the children to aid in Olaf’s endeavors.
Season 1 of A Series of Unfortunate Events premieres on Friday, January 13, 2017 on Netflix.
