Even though it doesn't look like NBC will be picking up Bryan Fuller's new Munsters series Mockingbird Lane, the network has decided to air the pilot episode directed by Bryan Singer as a Halloween Special.
The pilot of the episode has been in development for two years and has cost the network $10 million so it makes sense that they would want to get it on the air. Who knows, maybe if it does well, they will order up a few more episodes.
The show is based on the 1964 comedy TV series the follows a family of monsters that consists of a vampire, werewolf, Frankenstein and their normal cousin. It stars Jerry O'Connell as Herman Munster who is married to a vampire named Lily, played by Portia De Rossi. Together they have a 10-year-old boy named Eddie (Mason Cook) who's a werewolf. Herman works at a funeral home, and worries that Eddie’s transformation into a werewolf and burgeoning awareness of his family’s origins will crush the boy’s spirit. Eddie Izzard plays Grandpa.
There's no word yet on when the show will air, but it will most likely be the week of October 31st, on or before Halloween. I'm curious to see how this turned out.
Are you you excited that you get to at least see the pilot episode of this series?
