Second time’s a charm?
NBC and Bryan Fuller attempted to re-animate popular sitcom “The Munsters” back in 2012 with “Mockingbird Lane,” a planned TV series that amounted to nothing more than a one-hour Halloween special. But they’re trying again, Deadline reports tonight.
The network is rebooting “The Munsters” once more as a half-hour, single-camera sitcom that “follows members of an offbeat family who are determined to stay true to themselves but struggle to fit in in hipster Brooklyn.”
Yes, Herman and the gang will deal with hipsters in Brooklyn.
“Odd Mom Out” creator Jill Kargman will write the script and executive produce with Sethmaker Shoemeyers Productions’ Seth Meyers and Mike Shoemaker.
“The Munsters” originally aired for just two seasons between 1964 and 1966.
