12-mockingbord-lane

Updated with TV promo trailer! NBC has released the first photos from Mockingbird Lane,” Bryan Fuller’s reboot of that ’60s show about a spooktacular clan comprised of Frankenstein’s monster, Dracula’s daughter, a vampire, a wee werewolf and their pretty, oddball cousin.

Reports TVLine, it was announced earlier this week that the pilot for the fanciful series will air as part of a spat of Halloween-themed programming on Friday, October 26 — if not feed into an actual series run.

Directed by Bryan Singer, Mockingbird Lane stars Jerry O’Connell (“Crossing Jordan”) as Herman Munster, Portia de Rossi (“Arrested Development”) as his wife Lily Eddie Izzard (“The Riches”) as Grandpa, Mason Cook (Spy Kids 4D) as Eddie and Charity Wakefield as Marilyn.

The pilot begins when a baby bear attacks a scouting trip, only it turns out that this “bear” is actually Eddie transformed into a werewolf. Eddie is unaware of his metamorphosis and it forces the family to move in order to protect the family secret. The coming of age story gets weirder as he fights against his family when he learns of a shocker: they’re a family of flesh-eaters!

    I am sooo mad about this! The plans they had to have the old classic universal monsters obviously now can’t happen. I am just sooo angry with this decision.

    I dont see how this cannot suck

    Portia looks really gorgeous in dark hair! i had no interest in this but i kinda want to see it now. i like how lush all the sets & costumes look.

  • Lauren Taylor

    No.

    I’m glad this failed.But I would have watched it for the whole crazy flesh-eater storyline.It looks more like “Dark Shadows” than The Munsters.

    I hope these are just rough cut photos and not actual screen shots from the final product, because anyone with normal eye sight can see the terrible fucking make-up job on O’Connel’s neck piece.

    and really? a slashed throat is the best you could come up with? not even a slash across the face, or something I don’t know…..more “monster-ish?”

    This just looks TERRIBLE! Alright, yeah, Charity Wakefield looks fantastic, but everything else is just so…WRONG. Isn’t the point of the Munsters that they’re, ya know, monsters? Hence their last name? Who’s idiot decision was it to say “Well, we want Herman Munster to appeal to a wider audience, so he’ll just look like a guy with stitched on his neck instead of Frankenstein’s Monster. Alright gang, now let’s get to the grocery store and buy ourselves a cheap prosthetic neck scar from the gumball machine!” ? Fuckin hell.

    This looks like a fun time, good decision they made I doubt this would of lasted as a full time show. It’s good for a cute special. I got a few chuckles out of it. Thought it was suppose to be more darker that didn’t look so dark. Maybe they turn into monsters at the end do to some ooze that comes off the spaceship from the not so mutant turtles.
