The Drama: Upcoming NBC Show Based on ‘The Munsters’ Gets A New Name

Feb 2, 2012  •  Post A Comment

NBC’s upcoming reboot of the 1960s sitcom “The Munsters” has a new name based on the Munster family’s address, TVLine.com reports. The new show will be called “Mockingbird Lane.”

As we reported back in November, the new show, from Bryan Fuller of “Pushing Daisies” and Bryan Singer of “X-Men,” will be a drama.

The Munster family’s creepy Victorian home is at 1313 Mockingbird Lane.

The pilot is still being cast. Key players in the original show were Fred Gwynne as Herman Munster, Yvonne De Carlo as Lily, Al Lewis as Grandpa, Butch Patrick as Eddie and Pat Priest for most of the run as Marilyn (replacing Beverley Owen, who played Marilyn in the first 13 episodes).

  1. Well it;s NBC sure it will flop when will they ever learn to come up with something NEW!! they are just crazy{NBC}

  2. Here is to hoping they rebuild the original house since it is owned by NBCUniversal. It would be sad to have a new show without such an iconic symbol.
