Meet the Munsters! We've Scared Up the First Photos from Mockingbird Lane
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. You can also watch the first TV promo here.
