The above show is a new BBC comedy that is a mockumentary-style comedy about a group of vampires "living" in Staten Island. The three main leads are played by British actors. I've seen the pilot episode, and found it amusing.
I might add to this thread once I've seen more episodes, bur I'm mentioning it now in case its of interest to anyone else!


It's not made by the BBC, it's made by FX in the States and is a sequel to the 2014 New Zealand film written by Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, and directed by the latter. Waititi directed 3 episodes of the TV show and Clement wrote or co-wrote most of the episodes. The movie characters also show up as part of the Vampire Council in a later episode.

The film was brilliant, the TV show is almost as good but can't quite sustain the same level of quality (episodes 2 and 9 in particular are a bit poor), but it still has fantastic moments.

There's also another TV show based on the same property, WELLINGTON PARANORMAL, which follows the two hapless New Zealand cops from the film as they investigate other supernatural goings-on in and around Wellington.

Thanks Werthead! I've now seen all but the last two episodes, and its definitely worth a watch. It can be seen on the BBC iPlayer if you have access to it.
