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!

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

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!

Seems like it's all about monsters and classic TV remakes right now!
On Wednesday, we learned that CBS was remaking Bewitched, following a trend of remakes including Charlie's Angeles, Hawaii Five-O, and Dallas.
Then yesterday, we heard that a new Frankenstein series was coming to NBC.

Looks like Veronica Mars may become Veronica Munsters!
Pushing Daisies creator Bryan Fuller, who's behind the upcoming Munsters reboot for NBC, wants Kristen Bell as Marilyn in the new show.
For those unaware, Marilyn is the only member of the Munster family who doesn't look like a monster, but they all refer to her as "plain" looking, even though she's gorgeous.
We're not 100% sure how we feel about this, but we're def curious to see how this project progresses.
Would U like to see Kristen Bell return to TV in The Munsters?
