One of the next hotly anticipated original shows on its way to Netflix in the new year is Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, starring Neil Patrick Harris as the devious Count Olaf, a role previously held by Jim Carrey in the 2004 movie of the same name.

Based on the international best-selling books, Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events chronicles the turbulent lives of Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire after their parents’ untimely death in a fire. They somehow find themselves in the custody of distant relative named Count Olaf, who is only out to steal their inheritance.

The series is created by Daniel Handler (author of the Lemony Snicket series of books) and executive produced by Handler and Emmy winner Barry Sonnenfeld (Pushing Daisies, Men in Black, The Addams Family). Along with Harris, the series also stars Patrick Warburton (Lemony Snicket), Malina Weissman (Violet), Louis Hynes (Klaus), Presley Smith (Sunny), Joan Cusack (Justice Strauss), Alfre Woodard (Aunt Josephine), Catherine O'Hara (Dr. Orwell), K. Todd Freeman (Mr. Poe), Aasif Maandvi (Uncle Monty), Don Johnson (Sir) and more.
