Plot[ edit ] In the opening, the narrator, who identifies himself as Lemony Snicket, while typing on a type-writer, tells the audience the story of the Baudelaire children. Fourteen-year-old inventor Violet Baudelaire, her twelve-year-old brother Klaus, and their baby sister Sunny are orphaned when a fire burns down their house and kills their parents. Poe, the family's banker, manages their fortune and leaves them in the care of their closest relative Count Olaf, who is only interested in obtaining their fortune despite Violet not being the legal age of eighteen to obtain it.
And it was a hit. A Series of Unfortunate Events was quite a fortunate break for Netflix. I think it felt sort of visually different. It was very ambitious in terms of the size and scope of what we did. The books are beloved.

So I developed a real affinity towards the books. So from the time, I read them to my kid Chloe 20 years ago. Watching as an adult makes you realize how terrifying it is.
Like in Unfortunate Events, the kids are basically getting gaslit. Compared to your experience with the film, were you able to achieve most or all of what you wanted with the Netflix series?
I was able to achieve everything. And Netflix was profoundly supportive of that. I was very worried with the last book we did, The Miserable Mill, which was the last two episodes of the first season, the villain Sir smokes a cigar.
