.....'The Munsters'.......Bryan Fuller rebooted in 2012 as 1 hour [ it wasn't picked-up to series , so they made it a Halloween special ]......

......NBC is rebooting the reboot [ as a 1/2 hour show ]......they are switching coast.....from California to 'hipster' Brooklyn, NY......


‘The Munsters’ Reboot In Works At NBC From Jill Kargman & Seth Meyers

.....The Munsters are back! NBC is rebooting the 1960s comedy series about a family of lovable monsters with Odd Mom Out creator Jill Kargman and Seth Meyers.

Inspired by the original series, the half-hour single-camera The Munsters, now in development, follows members of an offbeat family who are determined to stay true to themselves but struggle to fit in in hipster Brooklyn. (In the original, the Munsters resided at the famous 1313 Mockingbird Lane address in the city of Mockingbird Heights, a fictional suburb in California.)

Kargman will write the script and will executive produce with Sethmaker Shoemeyers Productions’ Meyers and Mike Shoemaker. Universal TV is the studio.

I hear the project originated with Kargman, who came up with a new take on the classic sitcom, which ran on CBS for two seasons from 1964-66. Her team tracked down the rights to Universal TV, where she teamed up with Late Night host Meyers, who has a producing deal at the studio.

NBC and Universal previously took a stab at rebooting The Munsters several years ago as an hour long series written by Bryan Fuller. It resulted in the big-budget pilot Mockingbird Lane, directed by Bryan Singer and starring Jerry O’Connell as family patriarch Herman Munster, Portia de Rossi as his wife Lily, Eddie Izzard as Grandpa and Charity Wakefield as cousin Marilyn, which aired as a Halloween special in 2012.

While NBC ultimately passed on the project going to series, the network did not close the door to bringing the family of monsters back.

“I won’t say we won’t do another version of The Munsters again,” NBC chief Bob Greenblatt said in January 2013. “We tried to make it an hour, which ultimately has more dramatic weight than a half-hour.”

The Munsters now is reverting to its original half-hour comedy format albeit as a single-camera vs. the multi-camera original.

Kargman is the creator, executive producer and star of the critically praised Bravo comedy series Odd Mom Out. Kargman, who also is a bestselling author, is repped by ICM Partners.

Meyers and Shoemaker also executive produce the upcoming NBC comedy series A.P.Bio.

The Munsters marks the second reboot of an old series for NBC next season. Last week the network announced a new version of the 1980s “MTV cops” drama Miami Vice, to be produced by Vin Diesel and Chris Morgan.

Eddie Izzard...

I think they should bring back the last cast and let them ad-lib the script.

Most of them are dead - that set would be as quiet as... well, the grave.



It is what it is.

Don't forget about The Munsters Today - the whole series is on you tube. It hasn't aged well....
