Bryan Fuller's 'Munsters' reboot is either dead or not
Remember Bryan Fuller's "Mockingbird Lane," the reboot of "The Munsters" NBC ordered, delayed, shot and has yet to send to series?
Well, depending on who you ask, it's either dead... or not.
On Monday, Deadline.com posted that "Mockingbird Lane" was unlikely to go to series. The project was original developed for the 2010-2011 development season, ordered to pilot in November 2011, delayed til summer and teased in a four-minute clip package at Comic-Con in July.
The pilot featured Jerry O'Connell, Portia de Rossi and Eddie Izzard and had at least some measure of fan hype due to the "Munsters" brand and, more particularly, Fuller's reputation from "Pushing Daisies" and a slew of other shows.
Deadline said that the pilot "didn't quite work," but offered no other details.
That evening, though, Fuller tweeted, "NBC just informed me that the Deadline article regarding #MockingbirdLane was Dead Wrong. Stay tuned for updates!"
And that's the last we've heard... We'll let you know more when anything is actually official.
