Based on the internationally best-selling series of books by author Lemony Snicket, AKA Daniel Handler, A Series of Unfortunate Events has been adapted for the small screen and will be coming to Netflix exclusively at the beginning of 2017.

Neil Patrick Harris stars in the show as evil Count Olaf - the guardian to the Baudelaire orphans - Violet, Klaus and Sunny - who will stop at nothing to ensure he gets his hands on the children's vast inheritance.

Forced to go up against Olaf and outsmart the showman at every opportunity, Violet, Klaus and Sunny will go on a journey that will challenge them like never before, and unlock clues surrounding their parents' mysterious death.

Chatting ahead of the premiere, Snicket warned: "If you like watching stories in which children enjoy pleasant rides in truck beds, on their way to colourful destinations where they finally solve the curious mysteries plaguing their lives… That story is streaming elsewhere."

The eight-episode series is a Netflix original production, executive produced by Barry Sonnenfeld and Daniel Handler.

Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events debuts on Netflix on January 13, 2017.
