The Munsters: NBC Developing (Another) Reboot with Seth Meyers

'The Munsters' Reboot In Works At NBC From Jill Kargman & Seth Meyers

In the original show, which ran from 1964 to 1966, the Munsters lived in California. After a false start a few years back, the Munsters are finally returning to the small screen - and 1313 Mockingbird Lane is apparently moving postcodes.

In 2012, NBC and Universal attempted to reboot the property under the helm of Star Trek: Discovery's Bryan Fuller.

According to Deadline, Meyers, formerly of Saturday Night Live and now of Late Night with Seth Meyers, is executive producing The Munsters reboot for NBC through his production company Sethmaker Shoemeyers Productions.

The rebooted series will follow the offbeat family based on classic horror movie characters as they struggle to fit into modern day hipster Brooklyn, Deadline reported. Munsters is the latest in the reboot or revival category as the phrase "everything old is new again" is being taken seriously at TV studios. It will be a half-hour, single-camera series, similar to the original 1960s comedy it's inspired by.

Kargman will also write the script. Sethmaker Shoemeyers will executive produce, as will Mike Shoemaker. She tracked down the rights to Universal TV. In addition, the network recently ordered the Meyers-produced comedy "A.P. Bio" to series. Well if you do, you'll be glad to know that Seth Meyers is working on a reboot of that lovable monster family for NBC. The series' episodes will be a half hour long. The pilot featured Eddie Izzard, Jerry O'Connell, and Portia De Rossi as the Munster family, and was directed by X-Men's Bryan Singer. It was aired as a Halloween special on NBC, with the network ultimately deciding not to order it to series.
