The popular book series, A Series of Unfortunate Events, by Lemony Snicket is going to be adapted into a television series by Netflix.
The 13 book series follows the adventures of the Baudelaire siblings, Violent, Klaus and Sunny, after the death of their parents. Netflix as aquired the rights to the series and are set on making a television series with Paramount Television. Lemony Snicket himself, (aka Daniel Handler) will be an executive producer of the show.
“I can’t believe it,” Snicket said. “After years of providing top-quality entertainment on demand, Netflix is risking its reputation and its success by associating itself with my dismaying and upsetting books.”
The series was published from 1999 to 2006 and more than 60 million copies of the books have sold worldwide.
