When it comes to The Munsters, NBC execs know this: What Bryan Fuller did to recreate TV’s beloved gang of misfits did not work for them.
The network hired Fuller do an update of the monstrous family. He turned in a pilot called Mockingbird Lane, however, NBC opted not to run with a series based on that pilot. Instead, they aired it as a Halloween special.
That doesn’t mean The Munsters is entirely dead at NBC, however.
