The Munsters Reboot Is Done-sters, But… (UPDATE)


Update: Bryan Fuller says Deadline is a liar and that NBC hasn’t passed, at least not yet, and I think he’d be in a position to know. So maybe we’ll get Mockingbird and more Pushing Daisies. Oh, perchance to dream!

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!
