“What We Do In Shadows” Series Casts Up

Beloved creature actor Doug Jones (“Star Trek: Discovery,” “The Shape of Water”) and “Lady Bird” actress Beanie Feldstein are joining the cast of Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement’s “What We Do in the Shadows” television series for FX.

They join former “Limitless” TV series lead Jake McDorman, “The IT Crowd” scene-stealer Matt Berry, comedian Mark Proksch, Kayvan Novak, Natasia Demetriou, and Harvey Guillen on the half-hour comedy based on the mockumentary feature about vampires rooming together in New Zealand.

The remake, which will likely change the setting to somewhere in the United States, will be executive produced by Waititi, Paul Simms, Scott Rudin, Garrett Basch and Eli Bush. It is separate from both a film sequel called “We’re Wolves” and a spin-off TV series titled “Wellington Supernatural” which are in development and production respectively.
