What We Do In The Shadows Spin-Off Is Coming to the small-screen
A new spin-off series written by Clement and Waititi will air in 2017. The 6-part miniseries will follow two cops called Karen and Mike and their paranormal response unit (Paranormal Emergency Response Unit). They will have cameras following and recording their every move as they take calls to deal with the supernatural beings of Wellington, New Zealand.
The show has received a budget of $1.4m to bring the What We Do In The Shadows spin-off to the small screen. The show will be titled Paranormal Emergency Response Unit.
Already I am thinking that this is going to be comedy gold. Karen and Mike could get a call about weirdly dressed gentlemen attacking people in a Wellington nightclub. They could be called to an apartment where it looks like the tenants are having a domestic and fighting over dirty dishes and who does the hoovering.
Jermaine Clement and Taiki Waititi also recently announced a follow-up to What We Do In The Shadows called We’re Wolves. The indirect sequel to the 2014 comedy will focus on the pack of werewolves we meet in the first film.
It seems that a lot of people still haven’t seen What We Do In The Shadows. I sell tons of this movie at work and push it as hard as I possibly can. I think that What We Do In The Shadows is one of the cleverest and funniest comedies of the last decade. I am so happy we will get to see more of this world, and looking forward to seeing new characters and more importantly, some pretty cool vampires!. Everyone that I have given this movie to has come back to me with really positive feedback. and looking more recommendations. I can’t wait to tell some customers about this exciting news!.
More updates to follow on both paranormal Emergency Response Unit and We’re Wolves
