NBC’s “The Munsters” will be brought to you by The Bryans.
X-Men and Superman Returns helmer Bryan Singer is finalizing a deal to direct and executive produce Bryan Fuller’s reboot of the 1960s comedy, which recently received a pilot order by NBC, reports Deadline.
Universal Television is producing the project, described as an imaginative reinvention of “The Munsters” as a visually spectacular one-hour drama.
After originally developing “The Munsters” last season, Fuller redeveloped it with NBC’s new executive team this summer and delivered his new script at the beginning of this month. Like Fuller’s previous series, “Pushing Daisies”, “The Munsters” calls for striking visuals mixed with all the classic “Munsters” archetypes, and NBC had been looking for a top director to create the world of “The Munsters” circa 2011.
The first pilot Singer directed was “House”, and he continues to serve as an executive producer on the long-running Fox medical drama.
