A Reboot of 'The Munsters' In In The Works

Lloyd Bishop  NBC

Well if you do, you'll be glad to know that Seth Meyers is working on a reboot of that lovable monster family for NBC.

Meyers is executive producing alongside Jill Kargman, who is also penning the script, and Mike Shoemaker who works with the talk show host through their company Sethmaker Shoemeyers Productions, Variety reported.

Do any of you remember the attempted reboot of The Munsters titled "Mockingbird Lane" back in 2012 by Bryan Fuller?

The original series followed the lives of the family, headed by Herman Munster-originally played by Fred Gwen-as they tried to navigate life in their fictional middle-class neighborhood Mockingbird Heights.

Universal TV produced the original cult hit, which picked up more fans in syndication thanks to decades of reruns than it did during its three-year run. Under Meyers and Kargman at NBC, the reboot will relocate from sunny Mockingbird Heights to "hipster Brooklyn" in NY.

India has expressed concern that the road, if completed, would make it easier for China to access India's northeastern states. So, in such scenario can India and China go to war? "Anyone with eyes to see and ears to hear will have got the message".

As it turns out, it was the Odd Mom Out creator and star who came up with the fresh spin on the classic sitcom, according to Deadline.

Sometimes compared to The Addams Family, which was a television comedy based on Charles Addams' comic sitcom, The Munsters premiered in 1964 and ran to 1966.

The show aired as a Halloween special and was not ordered 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.

"I won't say we won't do another version of The Munsters again", NBC chief Bob Greenblatt said in January 2013.
