In some not very surprising news, according to deadline.com, the MUNSTERS reboot, MOCKINGBIRD LANE, is unlikely to move forward:

It looks like NBC‘s Mockingbird Lane pilot won’t be going to series. There is no final decision, but I hear that the network brass are leaning toward passing on the project, a reboot of the classic 1960s sitcom The Munsters. The project from Bryan Fuller had been in the works at NBC for a couple of seasons … Munsters was to feature striking visuals mixed with all the classic Munsters archetypes. Rolled to June, the pilot landed Bryan Singer as director and assembled a cast led by Jerry O’Connell as family patriarch Herman Munster, Portia de Rossi as his wife Lily, and Eddie Izzard as Grandpa. The pilot was lauded for its visual style but pulling off the high-concept premise — a show about a family of “monsters” — was always considered a risky proposition. In the end, I hear it didn’t quite work.

I can’t say I’m surprised. From all the various updates we’ve gotten over the previous year it never really sounded all that impressive or solid (you can see all the various updates here).

This seems to be a project that needed to die. What do you all think?

Stay Bloody!!!
