Less than 2 weeks after receiving Bryan Fuller’s script for “The Munsters,” NBC has given a pilot order to the “Pushing Daisies” and “Dead Like Me” creator’s reboot of the 1960s comedy, reports Deadline.
Universal Television is producing the project, described as an imaginative reinvention of “The Munsters” as a visually spectacular one-hour drama.
Word is that the network envisions the new “Munsters” as a potential summer or event series. 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.
In addition to “The Munsters,” Fuller also has “Hannibal,” based on the Hannibal Lecter character, in contention at NBC for a straight-to-series order via Gaumont International TV.
