They’re creepy and they’re kooky…. Oops, wrong family.
Well, since The Munsters‘ theme has no lyrics from which to craft a clever lede, we’ll keep it simple: NBC has released the first photos from Mockingbird Lane, Bryan Fuller’s reboot of that ’60s show about a spooktacular clan comprised of Frankenstein’s monster, Dracula’s daughter, a vampire, a wee werewolf and their pretty, oddball cousin.
It was announced earlier this week that the pilot for the fanciful series will air as part of a spate of Halloween-themed programming on Friday, Oct. 26 — if not feed into an actual series run.
Directed by Bryan Singer, Mockingbird Lane stars Jerry O’Connell (Crossing Jordan) as Herman Munster, Portia de Rossi (Arrested Development) as his wife Lily — who in one photo gives new meaning to “bandage dress” — Eddie Izzard (The Riches) as Grandpa, Mason Cook (Spy Kids 4D) as Eddie and Charity Wakefield as Marilyn.
