October cannot come soon enough! To hold us off, we finally get the first official trailer to Syfy’s “Reginald the Vampire” with Jacob Batalon. We’re not long until we see our favorite “guy in the chair” on-screen. See him transform from an ordinary guy selling slushies to the next blood-sucker navigating his way through being a new vampire. With the official poster just releasing last week, the Spider-Man actor is coming in hot with these quick glimpses of his character. Check it all out below!
Jacob first shared last year that he’s stoked to be No. 1 on the call sheet with his announcement for his next project. The Syfy series Reginald the Vampire was picked up by the NBCUniversal network and is based on the book series, Fat Vampire. The book series follows Reginald Baskin who gets turned into a slow, weak, most out-of-shape vampire by his coworker and tech guy Maurice. The story of an unlikely hero will bleed into the TV series.
Harley Peyton (Twin Peaks, Chucky), who will serve as showrunner, the dramedy imagines a world populated by “beautiful, fit and vain vampires.” Reginald Baskin will have to navigate every kind of obstacle – the girl he loves but can’t be with, a bully manager at work, and the vampire chieftain who wants him dead. He’ll discover that he has a few powers of his own to navigate through the “undead life which is just as complicated life itself.”
