Just a day or so ago we came to you with the news that NBC would probably pass on the Munsters reboot called Mockingbird Lane. Looks like they have, so to speak. Read on for the latest.
Per THR, they have decided to air the show’s pricey $10 million pilot, which has been in development for two years, as a Halloween special. “Mockingbird Lane” will air Friday, October 26th, at 8:00 pm before “Grimm.”
Written by Bryan Fuller and directed by Bryan Singer, “Mockingbird Lane” is described as a reinvention of the 1960s sitcom about “The Munsters,” a family of “monsters” — vampires, werewolves and Frankenstein — and their “plain” cousin that will feature striking visuals in the vein of Fuller’s ABC dramedy “Pushing Daisies.”
Portia DeRossi and Jerry O’Connell star as Lily and Herman Munster, Eddie Izzard as Grandpa, Mason Cook as Eddie, and Charity Wakefield as Marilyn.
