Patrick Warburton (“The Tick,” “Seinfeld”) has scored the key role of Lemony Snicket in Netflix’s upcoming straight-to-series adaptation of Daniel Handler’s “A Series of Unfortunate Events” novels.
“A Series of Unfortunate Events” tells the tale of orphaned children Violet (Malina Weissman), Klaus (Louis Hynes) and Sunny Baudelaire, who find themselves in the villainous clutches of an evil uncle named Count Olaf (Neil Patrick Harris) who has designs on their family fortune.
Warburton will take on the role of Snicket, the harried and troubled writer-photographer who is falsely accused of felonies and is continuously hunted by police and his enemies. Jude Law voiced the role in the 2004 feature, while Handler wrote the book series under that pen name.
Mark Hudis will take over as showrunner on the series while Handler will executive produce.
