NBC has officially(er) passed Mockingbird Lane a Munsters reboot, which cast Eddie Izzard as Grandpa (Dracula), Portia de Rossi as Lily (Dracula’s daughter), Jerry O’Connell as Herman (Frankenstein), Mason Cook as Eddie (Werewolf) and Charity Wakefield as Marilyn (a blonde). The network apparently didn’t like the idea of a family of murderous monsters but aired the pilot as a Halloween special to offset some the monstrous cost, an estimated $10 million. Despite receiving positive ratings and reviews, NBC won’t be reconsidering its decision, according to producer Bryan Fuller.
“I tweet with a heavy heart,” Fuller posted on Twitter. “NBC not moving forward with #MockingbirdLane. From producers and cast, thank you all for enthusiasm and support.”
