Sadly after all that hype, Mockingbird Lane, The Munsters reboot, looks like it’s not getting picked up. There is not an official “no” from the network yet, but word is that they’re leaning towards a “No.” So sad because the cast alone sounded AMAZING!! With Bryan Fuller as the head honcho and actors like Jerry O’Connell, Eddie Izzard, and Portia de Rossi–how could you go wrong? Was it because they were all in costume and it got too theatrical? Did it get too expensive? Did the pilot suck? Tear.
I made fun of the show when they first announced it, but once the cast got on board, I was in. I feel like this is one show they should have given a chance to. But really, if this cast can’t pull off a comedy reboot, then who can?
**UPDATE** IT’S NOT DEAD! Bryan Fuller tweeted, ”NBC just informed me the Deadline article regarding #MockingbirdLane was Dead Wrong. Stay tuned for updates!”
