Lemony Snicket’s ‘A Series of Unfortunate Events’ Coming to Netflix as Series


Over the past few years Netflix has become a force to be reckoned with when it comes to quality original programming and now the network plans to add Lemony Snicket’s best-selling book series A Series of Unfortunate Events to its list of successes.

Netflix has acquired the rights to the Lemony Snicket penned series and according to Deadline “the search is underway for a director to help re-create Snicket’s visual world on TV. Netflix is producing the project, which is being fast-tracked, with Paramount Television.”

In a statement to the site, VP of Original Content at Netflix, Cindy Holland regaled, “On the search for fantastic material that appeals to both parents and kids, the first stop for generations of readers is A Series of Unfortunate Events. The world created by Lemony Snicket is unique, darkly funny and relatable. We can’t wait to bring it to life for Netflix members.”

The film starring Jim Carey was released in 2004 and pulled in $209 million worldwide.
