TV: CBS Close to Greenlighting ‘Munsters’ Revival?

Within the article detailing CBS’s potential new “Hannibal” series, it was revealed that NBC may pull the trigger on a series order as early as this week for the new “Munsters” as a potential summer or event series.

Deadline got the scoop on the breakdown, reporting that the project features striking visuals mixed with all the classic “Munsters” archetypes. Grandpa Sam Dracula is essentially Dracula who assembled Herman because no man was good enough for his daughter Lily, a sexy vamp. Lily’s niece Marilyn the freak is actually normal and Lily and Herman’s only child, Eddie, has his werewolf tendencies surface in puberty, forcing the family to relocate to their famous 1313 Mockingbird Lane address.

The revival series comes from “Pushing Daisies” and “Dead Like Me” creator Bryan Fuller.
