This past Friday, 26 October, NBC
broadcasted a special Halloween event, the revival of the classic series “The Munsters
“. This re-imagining generated “Mockingbird Lane” (a title selected from the notorious street address of the Munster family).
There has been lots of online turmoil about this project, not being yet clear if this pilot episode will lead to more episodes or not. Which is actually a shame since there are top-notch people associated with the project, such as executive producer Bryan Fuller
(Pushing Daisies, Dead Like Me, Wonderfalls, Heroes) who wrote the script, and executive producer Bryan Singer
(X-Men, House) who directed this one-hour pilot. Cast includes Jerry O’Connell, Portia de Rossi, Eddie Izzard, Mason Cook and Charity Wakefield in the familiar roles of Herman, Lilly, Granpa, Eddie, and Marilyn respectively.
I sure hope that the channel will decide to green-light the project and we will have a chance to view more adventures of the Munsters in 2013.
