What We Do in the Shadows was a low-budget movie made in New Zealand five years ago by one of Hollywood’s most famous Kiwis, Jemaine Clement. As co-writer, co-director, and star of the movie, he was brought in as a producer for the new TV adaptation. Clement told us it’s interesting to remake the movie as a series, since the show’s been given an even bigger budget than the movie had. Still, he says the look and feel of the series stays true to the style of the film. (Click on the media bar below to hear Jemaine Clement)
What We Do in the Shadows premieres March 27 on FX.
