Not all vampires look like Edward Cullen.
Reginald the Vampire–a Syfy horror-comedy–will have its coming-out party Oct. 5, and a trailer dropped this week to preview the travails of this most unusual bloodsucker. Check out the video–courtesy of Entertainment Weekly–on this page.
The 10-episode series–based on Johnny B. Truant’s six-novel Fat Vampire series–stars Jacob Batalon (the Spider-Man franchise) as Reginald Andres–“the slowest, weakest, most out-of-shape vampire ever.”
Batalon–joined in the cast by Sean Yves, Mandela Van Peebles, Em Haine, Aren Buchholz, Savannah Basley, Georgia Waters and Marguerite Hanna–has to “navigate every type of obstacle” as Reginald, including “the girl he loves but can’t be with, a bully manager at work and a vampire chieftain who wants him dead,” according to the logline.
The series is led by writer and showrunner Harley Peyton (Chucky, Twin Peaks) and executive producer and director Jeremiah Chechik (Diabolique).
