NBC To Air THE MUNSTERS Remake As A Halloween Special

Things look rather grim for NBC's remake of The Munsters, titled Mockingbird Lane, as last week Deadline reported that the show would probably not make it past the pilot stage.



According to the The Hollywood Reporter, NBC will unveil the pilot for "Mockingbird Lane." The plan is to air the pilot, which ws directed by Bryan Singer ("X-Men") as a Halloween special. No exact date has been specified at this moment.

While it is good news that people will be able to view Brian Fuller's version of The Munsters for the first time, it still doesn't feel very optimistic. Actually it feels like a hail mary, a last desperate attempt to see if the show can find an audience. Can't blame NBC for making the attempt as the show has already cost them a reported $10 million. Ouch!


The pilot, written by Bryan Fuller and to be directed by Bryan Singer, is described as a reinvention of the 1960s sitcom about The Munsters, a family of “monsters” — vampires, werewolves and Frankenstein, and their “plain” cousin (Charity Wakefield) — that will feature striking visuals in the vein of Fuller’s ABC dramedy Pushing Daisies. O’Connell will play family patriarch, the handsome and gangly Herman Munster, a great dad and devoted husband. He is married to Lily, a vampire, with whom he has fathered a 10-year-old boy, Eddie (Mason Cook). Strong but sentimental, Herman works at a funeral home, and worries that Eddie’s transformation into a werewolf and burgeoning awareness of his family’s origins will crush the boy’s spirit.
