TVLine Items: Unfortunate Castings, New Steven Avery Special and More

Netflix’s upcoming Series of Unfortunate Events adaptation just found two of its (un)lucky stars.

Malina Weissman — best known for playing Young Kara on CBS’ Supergirl — and newcomer Louis Hynes have been cast as Violet and Klaus Baudelaire, our sister site Deadline reports.

Adapted from the novels by Lemony Snicket, A Series of Unfortunate Events tells the story of the orphaned Baudelaire children who are constantly at odds with the villainous Count Olaf as they try to uncover the truth about their parents’ death.

The long-gestating Netflix project is slated to begin filming in March.
