NBC Offers Munsters Reboot ‘Mockingbird Lane’ As a Stand Alone Halloween Special
Although chances of NBC’s Mockingbird Lane going to series are officially slim, the curious among us have an opportunity to check out the pilot episode, which airs as a stand alone offering for Halloween on Friday October 26th from 8:00 – 9:00 pm on NBC.
Check out NBC’s press release and promo trailer for the pilot below. The impressive visuals alone kind of makes us wish there was more.
THERE IS A NEW FAMILY IN TOWN ON MOCKINGBIRD LANE AND THE NEIGHBORHOOD WILL NEVER BE THE SAME
Sweet little Eddie Munster (Mason Cook) is a normal kid about to enter the horrors of puberty. Truth is, he’s about to discover that for him becoming a teenager means growing hair in truly unexpected places — as in all over his body — every time the moon is full! Eddie’s got it pretty good though. His loving, supportive, run-of-the-mill family includes his mom Lily (Portia de Rossi), the daughter of Dracula; his dad Herman (Jerry O’Connell), who brings new meaning to “Frankenstein”; and Grandpa (Eddie Izzard), who would give Dracula a run for his money if he weren’t actually Dracula! Of course then there’s creepy cousin Marilyn (Charity Wakefield), who’s really the odd one because she’s so completely normal. This new, reimagined version of the classic 1960’s comedy “The Munsters” is based on executive producer Bryan Fuller’s (“Pushing Daisies,” “Heroes”) script and was directed by executive producer Bryan Singer (“X-Men” film series, “House”).
