NBC announced it has ordered a pilot episode for a reboot of The Munsters after receiving a script from Pushing Daisies creator Bryan Fuller. According to Deadline, NBC expects the series to air as a special summer or event series.
Fuller’s whimsical, strikingly visual style could be a good fit to breathe new life, excuse the pun, into this family of vampires, werewolves and Frankenstein’s monsters. Let’s just hope this pilot doesn’t go the way of Wonder Woman.
Fuller is also separately working on a script for a new Hannibal Lecter series, which NBC may commit to 13 episodes if all goes well.
Although, I’m not quite sure how whimsical a show about Hannibal Lecter would be.
