MOCKINGBIRD LANE Concept Art Reveals Different Looks For Herman & Eddie Munster
NBC's remake of The Munsters was the best treat I had this past Halloween! For those of us that enjoyed the pilot I have some wonderful concept art and behind-the-scenes photos, featuring different versions of Herman Munster and Eddie's werewolf form.
When Bryan Fuller's Mockingbird Lane aired just before Halloween, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I really liked it. It was a fresh take on The Munsters, dark humor aplenty, with just the right touch of horror to keep viewers on their toes. When you have an opening scene where boy scouts and troop leaders are massacred by a werewolf you know you're in for something better than the average television series.
Fuller has hinted that the show could become more than just a Halloween special if the ratings were strong enough, but the premiere wasn't a clear success nor was it a failure. I would define it as decent, the show averaged a 1.6 rating and pulled in 5.33 million viewers overall. Keep in mind that the show did air on a Friday night, which is the hardest night to draw in viewers. A major positive is that it outperformed Blue Bloods and CSI: NY in the coveted 18-49 demographic and it made for a great lead-in for Grimm, which had it's second-highest rated episode.

SYNOPSIS - Sweet little Eddie Munster (Mason Cook) is a normal kid about to enter the horrors of puberty. Truth is, he's about to discover that for him becoming a teenager means growing hair in truly unexpected places -- as in all over his body -- every time the moon is full! Eddie's got it pretty good though. His loving, supportive, run-of-the-mill family includes his mom Lily (Portia de Rossi), the daughter of Dracula; his dad Herman (Jerry O'Connell), who brings new meaning to "Frankenstein"; and Grandpa (Eddie Izzard), who would give Dracula a run for his money if he weren't actually Dracula! Of course then there's creepy cousin Marilyn (Charity Wakefield), who's really the odd one because she's so completely normal.
Buying a house these days is a nightmare, so Herman and Lily are shocked that no one scooped up the rambling Victorian mansion at 1313 Mockingbird Lane that was the site of a series of grisly hobo murders. Settling into their new place, they're quickly on to the mission at hand: to gently ease Eddie into the reality of his werewolf adolescence. But it's not always so easy to accept that your child is a little "different" from the rest of the kids. Meanwhile, Herman, who works as a funeral director, is suffering from a heart condition. Since he's made up mostly of spare parts, he knew his makeshift heart would eventually give out. No worries, though, because Grandpa, who is pretty good at procuring body parts, is on the case. All Herman cares about is finding a new heart with the same capacity to love Lily as much as he has for so many decades..
