The Munsters: NBC Developing (Another) Reboot with Seth Meyers

Share

NBC is giving The Munsters another try, with Late Night host Seth Meyers and Jill Kargman, star and creator of Odd Mom Out, heading up the project. This is of course in contrast to the original series, which took place in the fictional California suburb Mockingbird Heights.

The Munsters first premiered in 1964 on CBS and ran until 1966, when it was canceled due to low ratings.

Now in development, The Munsters reboot is said to be inspired by the original series, but will relocate the setting of the show from California to Brooklyn, New York, where the oddball family will try to fit in among hipsters. At that point she turned to Meyers to help EP the show seeing as he already had a producing deal with Universal TV. The next in a television reboot trend that includes, but is not limited to, Roseanne, Miami Vice, and Will & Grace, is classic monster comedy series, The Munsters. Kargman will write the script as well as executive produce with Myers and Mike Shoemaker. Universal TV is the studio. Bryan Fuller (Pushing Daisies, Hannibal) tried in 2012 with 1313 Mockingbird Lane, which starred Jerry O'Connell, Portia de Rossi and Eddie Izzard and was actually pretty good, though NBC only aired the two-hour pilot. In addition, the network recently ordered the Meyers-produced comedy "A.P. Bio" to series.

It seems like this family of trailblazing monsters would fit right in with hipster Brooklyn-we could totally see Lily Munster enjoying a knife skills class at the Meat Hook, Eddie going to St. Ann's, Marilyn attached to a selfie stick, and Herman Munster growing a beard. It aired as a Halloween special in 2012 but didn't go forward as a series.
