Bryan Singer

How Amazing is This??

I wrote about a remake of “The Munsters” in December. The television series is headed for NBC in the Fall and will be retitled “Mockingbird Lane”. Bryan Singer is directing the pilot which is said to be a much darker version of the beloved television series. The story is set to start with the relocation of “The Munsters” to Mockingbird Lane after an animal attack brought on by Eddie Munster’s puberty-driven transformations. Best news of all……Eddie Izzard has been cast as Grandpa Munster. Yippee!!

It’s true!



Bryan Singer will be producing and directing “The Munsters” reboot for NBC.  Singer, the director of movies such as “X-Men”,” X2″, and “The Usual Suspects“.  Singer will be directing the pilot and afterwards will stay on as an executive producer.


Universal Television is producing the project, described as an imaginative reinvention of The Munsters as a visually spectacular one-hour drama … “


Bryan Fuller is the writer  and will also be an executive producer.  His previous work includes “Pushing Daisies” so it should be more than a little quirky.  I admit that I was more than a little torn and skeptical when I heard the news of the reboot but with these guys attached I think it might have a fighting chance.  Can’t wait to see the finished product.
