No, wait, it's dead. Sorry, Herman Munster, it doesn't look like the mad science worked this time.
NBC has officially pulled the plug on Mockingbird Lane, the reboot of the classic Munsters series starring Jerry O'Connell and Eddie Izzard.
I tweet with a heavy heart. NBC not moving forward with #MockingbirdLane. From producers and cast, thank you all for enthusiasm and support.
