Bryan Fuller's Gritty MUNSTERS Reboot

Bryan Fuller working on a TV remake of THE MUNSTERS? And Guillermo del Toro is rumored to be involved too?

Consider this an early Halloween present from me to you: Pushing Daisies mastermind Bryan Fuller is toiling away on a modern-day reboot of the creepshow classic The Munsters!

So far, NBC, with whom Fuller has an overall deal, has ordered only a pilot. But since the potential series is being described to me as “Modern Family meets True Blood,” I have a good feeling about it.

Not only that, but rumor has it no less than Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy) is eyeing a behind-the-scenes role in the project.

So, um, once you’ve picked your jaw up off the floor, let’s see the synonyms for “amazing” you come up with to describe the very notion of this show below.


I think Brad Garret is the first name that comes to mind when we think of an actor for Herman. I also nominate Ken Jenkins as Grandpa!

That is a fair question. And of course I would have LOVED to have seen Fuller create something of his own. But this seems like something that could be fun, even if it is unnecessary.

Well, it's probably not NECESSARY, but I can imagine that this will be a whole different take on The Munsters, that steers far, far away from the classic laugh track sitcom that the original was. Kinda like the Barry Sonnenfeld Addams Family movies relate to the 60's sitcom.

Utterly unnecessary, but if they're going to bother, they'd better get Brad Garrett to play Herman or they're wasting their time.

reading about Eddie Munster got me wondering if they are going to keep Marilyn in it the way she was protrayed or will it not be considered insensitive to have the pretty lbonde worried about being considered plain and unattractive compared to the rest of her family?

Rise of The Munsters and Frankenstein

From THR:
'The Munsters': 'Pushing Daisies' Creator Takes Second Stab at Remake With NBC

Lesley Goldberg wrote:First Frankenstein now The Munsters? NBC seems to have a thing for big, tall green men.

As first reported by TV Guide, the network is developing a remake of The Munsters with Pushing Daisies creator Bryan Fuller, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

New NBC Entertainment topper Robert Greenblatt is said to like the idea of a remake and has asked Fuller to take another attempt at the project.

Fuller and NBC first made an attempt to revive the 1960s CBS sitcom last year, with the Peacock ultimately passing.

Fuller’s new look is said to be an edgier and slightly darker hourlong take exploring origins of Herman and Lily Munster (Fred Gwynne and Yvonne De Carlo) and how they arrived at the famed 1313 Mockingbird Lane address.

Like NBC’s recent script order for Frankenstein, Universal Media Studios will produce.

The original series, produced by Universal Studios, aired 70 episodes from 1964 to 1966 on CBS. The series has proved strong in syndication, ultimately drawing a spinoff, The Munsters Today, which ran from 1988 to 1991 and lasted 72 episodes. A feature film, Munster, Go Home, and a 1981 NBC telefilm, The Munsters’ Revenge with the original cast, also stemmed from the original property.

It’s been a big week for reboots, with CBS also ordering a script for a Bewitched reboot.


NBC Gives Life to 'Frankenstein' Reboot
Lesley Goldberg wrote:NBC is following in FX’s footsteps and exploring the horror genre, with a script order for Frankenstein.

The script, described as a modern-day take on the legend of Frankenstein, will be penned by House executive producers Russel Friend and Garrett Lerner for Universal Media Studios and BermanBraun.

The script order follows FX’s series order for Glee duo Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s “psycho-sexual” horror drama American Horror Story, which FX topper John Landgraf referred to as a “breakthrough commercial piece of television that’s going to be imitated widely if people find it.”

Universal Studios owns the intellectual property rights to Frankenstein, as well as such other classic characters as Dracula, the Wolfman and the Mummy.

The legend of Frankenstein was first told via Mary Shelley’s 1818 novel. The first film project, directed by J. Searle Dawley, came in 1910, with reboots including Universal’s 1931 Boris Karloff starrer. Universal was behind a series of films featuring the classic characters from 1942-48. The character was famously spoofed via Mel Brooks’ 1974 spoof Young Frankenstein.

The story was adapted for TV in 1973 with Leonard Whiting, Michael Sarrazin, James Mason and Jane Seymour. Other takes have included the TNT telefilm in 1993 with Patrick Bergin and Randy Quaid.

you know how there was shit from your childhood, and sometimes when you revisit it years later, it still holds up? or conversely there are ties when it really doesnt hold up. of course there are those times where it holds up for you, but you realize that it really IS a piece of shit, yet for whatever reason, you still dig it? one of those scenarios has to apply here!

Bryan Fuller’s NBC Double: ‘Daisies’ Creator Has Two Projects Eyeing Series Orders
NELLIE ANDREEVA wrote:Within the next month or so, Pushing Daisies creator Bryan Fuller may have two series on NBC. He is behind two high-profile projects, The Munsters and Hannibal, both of them on a script-to-series track. Fuller originally developed a reboot of the 1960s comedy series The Munsters last season and his was one of very few scripts new NBC chief Bob Greenblatt kept in play when he took over the network in January. Greenblatt rolled the project to get it redeveloped by his team. Fuller’s new outline submitted in Septemer was received well (it was the talk of NBC’s pre-Emmy party), and his draft was just delivered on Friday. Word is that NBC, which may pull the trigger on a series order as early as this week, envisions the new Munsters as a potential summer or event series. Like Fuller’s previous series, Pushing Daisies, the project features striking visuals mixed with all the classic Munsters archetypes. Grandpa Sam Dracula is essentially Dracula who assembled Herman because no man was good enought for his daughter Lily, a sexy vamp. Lily’s niece Marilyn the freak is actually normal and Lily and Herman’s only child, Eddie, has his werewolf tendencies surface in puberty, forcing the family to relocate to their famous 1313 Mockingbird Lane address.

Bryan Singer To Direct And Produce NBC’s ‘The Munsters’ Reboot
Nellie Andreeva wrote:EXCLUSIVE: NBC’s The Munsters will be brought to you by The Bryans. X-Men and Superman Returns helmer Bryan Singer is finalizing a deal to direct and executive produce Bryan Fuller’s reboot of the 1960s comedy, which recently received a pilot order by NBC. Universal Television is producing the project, described as an imaginative reinvention of The Munsters as a visually spectacular one-hour drama. Singer, who had been interested in the project since before it got the greenlight by NBC two weeks ago, will exec produce with Fuller.

After originally developing The Munsters last season, Fuller redeveloped it with NBC’s new executive team this summer and delivered his new script at the beginning of this month. Like Fuller’s previous series, Pushing Daisies, The Munsters calls for striking visuals mixed with all the classic Munsters archetypes, and NBC had been looking for a top director to create the world of The Munsters circa 2011. The pilot for Fuller’s Pushing Daisies also was directed by a feature helmer, Barry Sonnenfeld, who earned an Emmy for his work. The first pilot Singer directed was House, and he continues to serve as an executive producer on the long-running Fox medical drama. Singer has since directed only one other pilot, ABC’s Football Wives, and he served as an executive producer on the ABC drama series Dirty Sexy Money. On the feature side, WME-repped Singer most recently produced X-Men: First Class. As a director, he is in post-production on Jack the Giant Killer.

The only way they could play it straight would be to use monsters as metaphors for various disadvantaged or discriminated-against factions of real society. Vampires like Lily and Grandpa are the equivalent of people with HIV/AIDS, because both are spread by blood and the public is leery around them in a sort of Dumbledore panic. Creatures like Herman are psych patients; they can't help being what they are, but neither can they be forgiven for their potentially destructive behavior. And werewolves like Eddie are racial or religious minorities -- they were born that way, but why can't they act like regular people?

Marilyn, I guess, can read as an enabler/appeaser or a race traitor even.

Those programs didn't involve seven-foot-tall greenish guys with stitches around their necks, living amongst the typical people. Unless they tone down the looks of the characters to make them look like everyone else, they will be obvious and so unlikely sources of drama.
