As if to further drive home the point that its “imaginative reinvention” of The Munsters will bear little resemblance to the classic ’60s version, NBC is giving the reboot a new moniker.
Sources confirm to TVLine exclusively that the title of the pilot — which is being stewarded by Pushing Daisies creator Bryan Fuller and X-Men auteur Bryan Singer — has been changed from The Munsters to Mockingbird Lane.
The new handle is, of course, a nod to the family’s iconic Victorian abode, which is situated at 1313 Mockingbird Lane.
The project is currently in the casting stage, so there’s still time for Fuller/Singer/NBC to consult our dream picks for Herman, Lily and the rest of the creepy brood.
