Showrunner Bryan Fuller shared a first ever look at actor Charity Wakefield as Marilyn Munster in NBC’s “Mockingbird Lane,” their television reboot of “The Munsters” that also stars Eddie Izzard (first look), Mason Cook and Jerry O’Connell.
The pilot, written by Bryan Fuller and to be directed by Bryan Singer, is described as a reinvention of the 1960s sitcom about The Munsters, a family of “monsters” — vampires, werewolves and Frankenstein, and their “plain” cousin (Wakefield) — that will feature striking visuals in the vein of Fuller’s ABC dramedy “Pushing Daisies.” Cook will play Eddie Munster, Lily and Herman’s only child, an earnest boy scout and budding werewolf. Horrified to learn the truth about himself, he refuses to eat meat and faces off against Grandpa (Izzard) at dinner.
I’m very excited to see this on NBC’s slate this coming fall. I’m still a huge fan of Fuller’s “Dead Like Me” and expect this to be a beautiful disaster.
