Munsters Reboot Dead On The Table

It's alive! It's alive!

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.

Series creator Bryan Fuller broke the news to fans. He tweeted:

Jerry OConnell Portia De Rossi And Eddie Izzard in The Munsters

It was a Munster mash at Comic-Con 2012!

Portia De Rossi Gets Her Spook On With Munsters Re-Boot

Portia De Rossi -- With Ellen -- Is Mama Munster

It's a monster Munster mash!!

Portia de Rossi — of the late and great Arrested Development — just inked a deal with NBC to star as Lily Munster in their remake of the classic ‘60s horror/comedy.

We bet she and Ellen are having SUPER celebratory cuddles in their $18 mil Beverly Hills mansion right now, LOLz!!

Munsters 2.0 will actually be titled Mockingbird Lane.

Show runner Bryan Fuller and director Bryan Singer promise this will be a darker and more macabre version than your parents watched on TV!!

Portia’s matriarchal Munster was originally meant to be played by Mariana Klaveno of True Blood infamy — but she couldn’t get released from the contract on her Marc Cherry Hallmark pilot!

Yup! The same Mark Cherry entangled in that lengthy legal drama with Nicollette Sheridan over her Desperate Housewives departure!!

Portia’s co-stars on Mockingbird Lane include Jerry O’Connell and Eddie Izzard, who will play Herman and Grandpa Munster respectively.

We LOVE the cast so far and we’re really curious to see where NBC ultimately goes with this idea!!

Way to typecast guys! Ha!!

Vampire Beeel's sexy, scurry maker Mariana Klaveno has been offered the part of Lily Munster in Bryan Fuller's Munsters revamp, Mockingbird Lane.

BUT, because Mariana has preexisting deals with ABC's Devious Maids as a series regular, she may not be able to accept the role in the NBC dark comedy!

And even though

Looks like this reboot is sticking with the Brits so far!

As we've reported, NBC is busy remaking the '60s series of The Munsters, now called Mockingbird Lane, with Bryan Fuller serving as the writer, Bryan Singer in the director's seat, and Eddie Izzard in the role of the blood-sucking, shape-shifting Grandpa!

NBC Bringing On X-Men Director Bryan Singer To Direct New Munsters Series!

Filed under: TV NewsBusiness Blitz

bryan singer to direct new munsters

What an interesting choice! Hmm….

Last we heard about NBC's upcoming Munsters reboot, the network had officially ordered a pilot for the "imaginative…visually spectacular one hour drama."

Given the fact that Pushing Daises creator Bryan Fuller is developing the project, we've been feeling pret-ty good about it!

Now, X-Men/Superman Returns director Bryan Singer is

NBC Orders Pilot For New Munsters Show!

Filed under: TV News

nbc orders munsters pilot

We assure U, it's actually happening this time!

Back in August, we heard that NBC was developing a rebooted Munsters series with Pushing Daisies creator Bryan Fuller.

We had heard that it would be a dark and edgier take on the monster family, which would explore Herman and Lily Munster's origins.

Now, we've learned that NBC has officially ordered a pilot for Fuller's new series, which is being described as an "imaginative reinvention of The Munsters as a visually spectacular one hour drama."

Normally we'd be much more skeptical about this, but as we mentioned before, we've definitely got faith in the Pushing Daisies creator!

Good luck!
