And in shitty TV news, Bryan Fuller's utterly bizarre-looking Munsters reboot Mockingbird Lane -- the one that starred Eddie Izzard as Grandpa Munster -- is dead, as NBC is passing on the series. As well all know, NBC has such a surplus of quality shows, it can easily afford to skip out on a series from someone as talented as Fuller, secure in the knowledge that they can probably stick a repeat of SVU in there and no one will notice because no one's watching NBC anyways.
There is a silver lining, though -- Bryan Fuller has hinted that Starz may be interested in bringing back Pushing Daisies, which would be TOTALLY FUCKING AWESOME. And now Fuller is free! As curious as I am about Eddie Izzard as a Munster, I'd toss Mockingbird Lane in a dumpster in a heartbeat if it meant one more episode of the wonderfully macabre Pushing Daisies. Somebody get me a pie! (Via Deadline and Gamma Squad)
