If Taika Waititi’s 2014 mockumentary is to be believed, you can’t walk between lamp posts in New Zealand without running into a socially inept vampire or an extremely considerate werewolf. So it’s good the Thor 3 director’s What We Do in the Shadows is getting its own TV spinoff, for the sake of the human population. Created by Waititi and Shadows co-star Jemaine Clement, Paranormal Event Response Unit will follow guileless Shadows police officers Karen and Mike as they attempt to monitor and control supernatural creatures in the New Zealand capital, Wellington. So, if you're lucky, it's basically Ghostbusters, minus the ghosts and with 400 percent more geysers of blood.
