NBC is taking the classic TV show of The Munsters and rebooting it to be less of a comedy and more dramatic. Already cast in the series are Jerry O'Connell as Herman Munster and Eddie Izzard as Grandpa Munster.
Writing the Reboot is Pushing Daisies creator Bryan Fuller. This newer version will be much darker and delve into how Herman and Lily began and came to live at their famous address of 1313 Mockinbird Lane.
As we all remember, the original sitcom starred Fred Gwynne and Yvonne De Carlo.
The wife of Ellen DeGeneres had another pilot she recently worked on called The Smart One for ABC, but it was not picked up at the upfronts in May.
