NBC is still obsessed with bringing back “The Munsters”. Five years ago, they kicked the tires on a modern version called “Mockingbird Lane”, but they never got it off the ground. Instead, they just aired the pilot as a Halloween special.
Now, they’re developing a new version. There aren’t many details, other than that it’s set in Brooklyn, where they, quote, “struggle to fit in with their neighbors.”
The original sitcom aired from 1964 to 1966 on CBS. It took place in a fictional California suburb. There was also a syndicated spin-off called “The Munsters Today” that aired for a few seasons back in the ’80s.
