Hold us, we're afraid!

NBC released the first batch of stills for Mockingbird Lane and we're soooo confident the pictures will be terrifying that we've buried our head in our hands!!

Okay, maybe we'll sneak just one peek…

What the…? We thought Mockingbird Lane was a scurrrrry reboot of the classic '60s sitcom, The Munsters!?

This family is CUTE!

Jerry O'Connell and Portia de Rossi are adorbzies as a couple, though something tells us they won't fall in love off screen, LOLz!

And Eddie Izzard should be a fantastic choice to play Grandpa Munster!

Mockingbird Lane premieres October 26 — just in time for Halloween!

Check out more stills from the pilot (below)!

Jerry OConnell Portia De Rossi And Eddie Izzard in The Munsters

It was a Munster mash at Comic-Con 2012!

Series creator Bryan Fuller premiered a four-minute clip of his pilot for the reboot of the popular 1960s TV show which stars Portia de Rossi and Jerry O'Connell as the heads of the monstrous family!

Fuller spoke to the Comic Con panel about his goals for the pilot. He said:

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

Jerry O'Connell Is The New Herman Munster!

We wouldn't have thought of it ourselves, but Jerry O'Connell might just be a fantastic Herman Munster.

The actor has been cast in the role originally made famous by Fred Gwynne in the classic television sitcom about a family of monsters trying to live a normal life in suburbia.

Bryan Singer and Pushing Daisies creator Bryan Fuller are working on the 1-hour pilot, which will be called

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

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!
