In 2018, Clement signed on as creator to assist adapt the story right into a U.S. comedy-horror sequence on FX.
The present is filmed in mockumentary type, chronicling the mundane absurdity of 4 vampire roommates dwelling collectively in New York Metropolis. It stars actors Kayvan Novak, Matt Berry, Natasia Demetriou, Harvey Guillén, and Mark Proksch (to not point out a few of its legendary visitor stars). The present rapidly grew to become a essential and industrial success—and solely appears to be enhancing by the season.
