TV: “Munsters” Reboot “Mockingbird Lane” Gets Some Interesting Concept Art

Finally some tangible imagery is oozing out of “Mockingbird Lane”, NBC’s high concept series reboot of “The Munsters”. I actually applaud the decision to change the title, it’s a bold move in an age where brand recognition is everything and it hopefully gives this series a chance of carving out a slight new identity for itself. Mockingbird Lane is of course the new street the Munsters move to in order to reinvent their lives.

The pilot, written by Bryan Fuller and to be directed by Bryan Singer, is described as a reinvention of the 1960s sitcom about a family of “monsters” – vampires, werewolves and Frankenstein and their “plain” cousin (Wakefield) — with striking visuals in the vein of Fuller’s ABC dramedy “Pushing Daisies.”

Entertainment Weekly landed the image which features a nice mockup of the Munsters’ house as well as a decent peek at Eddie Izzard as “Grandpa”.

    I realize this is still in the early stages but if that’s the look and style they go with I won’t be watching this, it just looks too Tim Burton-esque and describing it as “an American Horror Story the whole family can watch” does not make it any more appealing but rather makes it sound like something to avoid. Pretty much the only thing here I don’t have a problem with is the decision to not call this The Munsters.
