“Mockingbird Lane“ proved to be a dead end.
TVLine reports that NBC has decided not to order to series the reboot of “The Munsters,” which had been shepherded by Bryan Fuller (“Hannibal,” “Dead Like Me,” “Pushing Daisies”) and directed by X-Men‘s Bryan Singer.
“I tweet with a heavy heart,” Fuller said on Thursday. “NBC not moving forward with #MockingbirdLane. From producers and cast, thank you all for enthusiasm and support.”
Says the site, the “Mockingbird Lane” pilot — which NBC aired as a pre-Halloween special — drew 5.4 million total viewers and a 1.5 rating, giving the network its best demo in the Fridays-at-8 time slot in two years.
The modernized Munster family featured Jerry O’Connell as Frankenstein-ish Herman, Portia de Rossi as his vampire wife Lily, Mason Cook as their budding werewolf son Eddie, Charity Wakefield as cousin Marilyn (aka the normal one) and The Riches‘ Eddie Izzard as the ravenous Grandpa.
