Last week we told you about the problems brewing with the Munsters reboot that NBC was creating called Mockingbird Lane. Now it seems as the higher ups have a choice to make.
According to THR, NBC has a big decision to make regarding its high-profile reboot of “The Munsters.” After two years in development and a pilot that sources say cost a whopping $10 million, the network is said to be unhappy with “Mockingbird Lane” (named for the famed family’s 1313 address) and is on the verge of scrapping the whole project. Sources say the network could choose to air the completed pilot as a Halloween special (either this year or next), or it might decide to shoot extra footage and package it as a made-for-TV movie for international buyers.
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.
