Munsters Reboot Mockingbird Lane Finally Put To Rest By NBC

Bryan Fuller had been holding out hope that the Hallowe’en airing of the Mockingbird Lane pilot might have convinced NBC to give the show a go ahead for a series later in 2013. Sadly, he brought the bad news to Twitter himself:

 

The show reworked the basic set up of The Munsters to curious, lightly surreal, off-beat comedic effect. There was definitely potential here.

Fuller’s other project of the moment is Hannibal, a TV procedural set in the world of Thomas Harris‘ Lecter books. This one has the full support of NBC. For now.
