Time to move back into the Munster Mansion: NBC and Pushing Daisies creator Bryan Fuller are remaking the 1960s classic sitcom The Munsters, Entertainment Weekly reports.
NBC has ordered a pilot for the project, described as "Modern Family meets True Blood," according to EW. (So, funny and full of unsexy sex scenes?) Director Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy) is also said to be interested in a behind-the-scenes role.
