Insert Herman’s open-mouthed, awkward clapping here — finally some reboot news I can get behind. Don’t get me wrong, I love the original series “The Munsters” and I can’t see anyone topping it. But it is quite outdated and if done right could be wildly entertaining. And the good news is, it has a very real possibility of being done right.
NBC has ordered a pilot from Bryan Fuller (Heroes, Pushing Daisies, Dead Like Me), calling the potential new series a cross between Modern Family and True Blood. I’ll have to assume they’re talking about the campy, clean parts of True Blood, because Alan Ball has a whole lotta stuff going on that NBC can’t air. The final exciting tidbit of this news is that Guillermo del Toro has some sort of behind the scenes involvement — right now there are no details about what exactly that means, but it’s enough to get me excited. A little del Toro can only make anything better.
There’s nothing left to do but watch a clip and make cast speculations. Let’s hear your suggestions, Pajibans.
