Netflix's A Series of Unfortunate Events: NPH Wigs Out in First Official Trailer

Neil Patrick Harris is a man of many hats — and wigs, and even a dress at one point — in the official trailer for Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events.

Based on Lemony Snicket’s beloved children’s book series, Unfortunate Events stars Harris as Count Olaf, a sinister figure who becomes the guardian of three young orphans — though he’s far more interested in getting his hands on their inheritance than he is in “guarding” them.

The trailer also contains the first footage of Joan Cusack (Shameless) as Justice Strauss and Catherine O’Hara (Schitt’s Creek) as Dr. Orwell.

A Series of Unfortunate Events‘ first season drops Friday, Jan. 13, 2017. Hit PLAY on the trailer above, then drop a comment with your thoughts below.
