Entertainment Weekly's Ausiello Reports that NBC has teamed up with Bryan Fuller to produce a modern-day version of 1960’s classic TV show The Munsters.
The network has ordered a pilot for the show, which is being pitched as a cross between Modern Family and True Blood.
Fuller, the mastermind behind shows like Pushing Daisies, Wonderfalls, and and Dead Like Me, is the only talent officially attached to the project. However, there are some rumors going around that Hellboy’s Guillermo del Toro wants to be involved behind the scenes.
The Munsters is a comedy about the life of an American family that happened to be monsters. The show is a satire of monster movies and traditional family shows like Leave It to Beaver.
The series aired in black-and-white once a week on the CBS Television Network. It ran from 1964 to 1966, airing 70 episodes. The show was canceled after ratings declined because of the increasing popularity of full color TV shows.
