After its success with adult-oriented shows such as “House of Cards” and “Orange is the New Black,” Netflix is stocking its library with some high-profile family-friendly franchise. The popular streaming video service recently got the rights to serialize Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events.
A Series of Unfortunate Events is a delightfully dark young-adult series that has the potential to intrigue audiences both young and old, with which Netflix is hoping to capture the broad demographic that encompasses the “family” genre. Netflix’s vice-president Cindy Holland told Deadline, “On the search for fantastic material that appeals to both parents and kids, the first stop for generations of readers is A Series Of Unfortunate Events. The world created by Lemony Snicket is unique, darkly funny and relatable. We can’t wait to bring it to life for Netflix members.”
