NBC is rebooting The Munsters for a new season.
Per Deadline, the network is reviving the 1960s comedy series about a family of lovable monsters:
Inspired by the original series, the half-hour single-camera The Munsters, now in development, follows members of an offbeat family who are determined to stay true to themselves but struggle to fit in in hipster Brooklyn. (In the original, the Munsters resided at the famous 1313 Mockingbird Lane address in the city of Mockingbird Heights, a fictional suburb in California.)
Kargman will write the script and will executive produce with Sethmaker Shoemeyers Productions’ Meyers and Mike Shoemaker. Universal TV is the studio.
I hear the project originated with Kargman, who came up with a new take on the classic sitcom, which ran on CBS for two seasons from 1964-66. Her team tracked down the rights to Universal TV, where she teamed up with Late Night host Meyers, who has a producing deal at the studio.
The Munsters originally survived two seasons on CBS from 1964 to 1966.
Are you looking forward to The Munsters reboot? Are NBC making a mistake rebooting the series?
