Netflix offers very fortunate delightful look at Lemony Snicket

The latest trailer for "Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events" gives a more in-depth look at the new Netflix series.

Lemony Snicket fans rejoice: There's a new trailer for "A Series of Unfortunate Events" out today, and it offers up a lot for your enjoyment.

The trailer opens with a warning, "If you are interested in a story with a happy ending, that story is streaming elsewhere."

Based on the internationally best-selling series of books by Lemony Snicket (aka Daniel Handler), "A Series of Unfortunate Events" chronicles the tragic tale of the Baudelaire orphans and their evil guardian Count Olaf. Olaf (Neil Patrick Harris) will stop at nothing (even disguises) to get his hands on their inheritance.

The eight-episode series premieres January 13 on Netflix. Until then, beware of bearded men with large knives and glasses.
