While Tim Burton was busy remaking Dark Shadows on the big screen this year — and what a disappointment that turned out to be — another '60s cult item, the horror parody The Munsters, was getting a lavish reboot from Burton's TV counterpart Bryan Fuller, whose Pushing Daisies remains a fantastical benchmark of blending the whimsical and the macabre into a dazzling visual smorgasbord.
The result, reported to have cost NBC in the neighborhood of $10 million, is one of the weirdest hybrids of the comical and eerie in quite some time...
Bryan Fuller's Mockingbird Lane finally has its first trailer.
After announcing the project would not move forward as a series, NBC decided to air The Munsters reboot as a stand-alone Halloween special on Friday, Oct. 26.
Bryan Fuller isn't giving up on Mockingbird Lane. Now that NBC plans to air the pilot as a special later this month, it appeared that the network had thrown in the towel on its Munsters redux. But Fuller—who's in Canada overseeing NBC's upcoming take on Hannibal—tells TV Guide Magazine that he remains bullish on Mockingbird, and thinks Halloween is a perfect time to get viewers on board.
"Such a different show merits a different way of getting it out to the audience," he says. "There's been tremendous support to get it out there and get people to see it, and have them make up their own minds," he says.
Fuller's modern take on The Munsters—starring Jerry O'Connell and Portia de Rossi as Herman and Lily Munster, and Eddie Izzard as Grandpa—wasn't ordered to series but instead will air as a one-hour special on Oct. 26 at 8/7c.

Viewers might not get a chance to revisit The Munsters after all. NBC is unlikely to proceed with the Bryan Fuller reboot Mockingbird Lane, The Hollywood Reporter and Deadline both report.
Fuller, however, denied the reports Monday night tweeting, "NBC just informed me the Deadline article regarding #MockingbirdLane was Dead Wrong. Stay tuned for updates!"
NBC's Munsters reboot, Mockingbird Lane, is lining up quite a cast.
The latest star to join the edgy drama is Beth Grant, according to TVLine.
Grant will play Maryanne, the paraplegic, busybody neighbor who takes a very keen interest in the strange new family next door.
Broadway star Cheyenne Jackson is set to guest-star in Mockingbird Lane, Deadline reports.
NBC's The Munsters reboot, written by Bryan Fuller and directed by Bryan Singer, is an edgy reinvention of the 1960s sitcom.
