I just love the opportunities that Netflix has provided me over the past four years as a member of the #streamteam. Not only do I get exclusive background information about shows before they start streaming online, I get invited to events with celebrities and world renowned authors too!
Well, this past week, I was part of a very select group of media to meet both the creators and cast members of the soon to be streaming Netflix original series, Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events. This Netflix Original Series will star Neil Patrick Harris as Count Olaf, who was with us for the evening. It was also a great treat (okay, trick if you want to be on Lemony Snicket’s snarky speak) to meet author Daniel Handler (Lemony Snicket is his pen name), and have him sign a book to my children. My middle daughter had already read this series in school. Once all of the invited guests were seated, Don Halcombe, Director, Originals publicity at Netflix welcomed everyone and invited us to watch the screen to preview a trailer from the first episode. Shortly after that, the stars were introduced and joined us. I was pretty star struck when I saw Neil Patrick Harris walk into the room. I have been a fan since his days as Dr. Douglas “Doogie” Howser. He was joined by fellow actors Malina Weissman (Violet Baudelaire); Louis Hynes (Klaus Baudelaire); and Lemony Snicket (Author and Executive Producer, Daniel Handler). This talented crew started off by reading holiday classics and then read from a script from the series. From what I saw, you and your family will just love this new Netflix original series.
Here are some more pictures from this all-star event, and a definite add to my highlight reel from 2016. Thank you Netlix for everything!
