The original "Munsters" aired from September, 1964-May, 1966, and starred Fred Gwynne as Herman, Yvonne De Carlo as Lily, Al Lewis as Grandpa, Butch Patrick as Eddie, and both Pat Priest and Beverley Owen as Marilyn (Owen appears in this episode).

Synopsis:

Marilyn's boyfriend invites the Munster clan to a masquerade. Marilyn goes as Priscilla, Lily is Little Bo Peep, Grandpa is Napoleon, and Herman is King Arthur in a suit of shining armor.

Mockingbird Lane Update; Bryan Fuller Still Hopeful Series Can Be Salvaged

12 October 2012 10:31 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

So it looks like we shouldn't completely count out "Mockingbird Lane" just yet. TV Guide has posted a lengthy article with the reboot's writer, Bryan Fuller, and he remains bullish on the show... and thinks Halloween is a perfect time to get viewers on board. Read on for a few excerpts.

As reported previously, the network has decided to air the show's pricey $10 million pilot on Friday, October 26th, at 8:00 pm before "Grimm." But Fuller's not overly concerned. "Such a different show merits a different way of getting it out to the audience... At its core it's a story about a family trying to carve a path in the world for a son who has challenges. It's intimately relatable, but we get to tell that story with monsters," he said. "It's gorgeous, every frame is sumptuous. You get to have these really interesting actors coming in and taking their spins on these classic characters. »

Fuller Bringing Universal Monsters to “Mockingbird Lane”

18 July 2012 4:16 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

Hollywood Reporter got to talk to Mockingbird Lane creator Bryan Fuller to talk about his upcoming Munsters reboot. I was going to edit the interview and put down only the good stuff, but due to the massive anticipation for this show on FM, I thought I’d just give you the whole thing so you can decide yourself what’s important or not. He talks about bringing back many of the most famous Universal monsters, talks about the casting, and also is asked to compare the show to ABC’s Once Upon A Time. Again, this is THR’s interview, and it is below. Enjoy.

The Hollywood Reporter: You mentioned this is the third incarnation of the Munsters reboot. How has the project evolved?

Bryan Fuller: The first two are relatively the same. It was essentially more on the scale of the heroes. The first version was where each »

Pushing Daisies creator Bryan Fuller is excited about mining the dusty, musty passages of Universal’s monster catacombs for his new take on the classic ’60s series The Munsters, entitled Mockingbird Lane.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the successful showrunner, who also has a series take on Hannibal set up at NBC, will breathe new life into Lily, Herman and Grandpa, even as his pilot plans to bring famed characters from the studio’s history ― the Wolfman, Phantom of the Opera and Creature from the Black Lagoon ― into the Munsters fold.

According to the trade, NBC’s reimagining will be a highly stylized take, and stars Portia de Rossi, Jerry O’Connell and Eddie Izzard as the famed family. A four-minute sizzle reel screened at Comic-Con to dedicated fans. TV Line had a chance to see it and described it as follows: “A sizzle reel »

TV Dial: Portia De Rossi Is Lily Munster; 'Dexter' Puts Yvonne Strahovski On The Block & Joseph Fiennes Joins 'American Horror Story'

13 June 2012 9:47 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Television news is running rampant as networks are locking down their pilot orders and getting their returning series in shape before the fall, so let’s see if we can nail these down, shall we? First, after word broke just a few weeks ago that “Piranha” actor Jerry O’Connell would be taking over the role of Herman Munster in the pilot for producers Bryan Singer and Bryan Fuller’s “The Munsters” reboot “Mockingbird Lane,” it now looks as if the show is about to get Funke-ified. That’s right, Portia De Rossi – probably known best to fans of the small screen as Lindsay Bluth Funke on “Arrested Development” – is taking over Yvonne De Carlo’s role as the Munster family matriarch Lily Munster. She’s the wife of O’Connell’s Herman Munster, and the offspring of actor Eddie Izzard’s character, Grandpa Munster, with Mason Cook filling the »

TV Horror: Meet The New Monsters of Mockingbird Lane & Hannibal

5 June 2012 3:43 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Casting news broke yesterday regarding Mockingbird Lane, NBC’s new re-imagining of the classic 60′s show The Munsters with much of the major characters being cast as the loveable yet monstrous family. It looks like Scream 2 & Piranha 3D‘s Jerry O’Connell will be our new Herman Munster, formerly made famous by the late and truly great Fred Gwynne. Grandpa Munster will be played by British comedian Eddie Izzard, with young actor Mason Cook donning Eddie Munsters widows peak and Marian Kleveno portraying the sultry Lily Munster – all respectively originated by Al Lews, Butch Patrick & Yvonne De Carlo. I’m sure a casting announcement for Marilyn Munster should follow shortly.

Described as an “edgier and dark take”, the reboot will focus on the origins of the Munster family and how they came to live at 1313 Mockingbird Lane. Bryan Singer (X-Men, producer of Trick ‘R Treat) will helm the pilot »

O'Connell Resurrecting 'Herman Munster'

5 June 2012 11:10 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

VancouverFilm.Net reports that NBC’s Vancouver-lensed "Munsters" TV pilot, "1313 Mockingbird Lane", under the supervision of  writer Bryan Fuller ("Pushing Daisies") has cast actor Jerry O’Connell to star as family head 'Herman Munster'.

Producer, director Bryan Singer ("Superman Returns") directs and also executive produces the prime-time pilot for Universal Television.

Decribed as a "visually spectacular one-hour drama" (not a comedy), the show will focus on Herman, originally inspired by Universal's re-animated "Frankenstein" monster, who now lives in a constant state of decay, with a subplot involving Herman’s need for a new heart, and "finding a donor for a replacement."

"When you come to 'The Munsters'", said Fuller, "and have 'Herman', who’s essentially a zombie in a constant state of decay, married to a woman who doesn’t age, there’s something very poignant there...we want this show to be an American 'Harry Potter'. To »

Eddie Izzard in final negotiations to star in and produce NBC's Munsters remake. Mockingbird Lane may land Izzard in the Bryan Fuller-scripted pilot, directed by Bryan Singer, reports Deadline. Apparently the 1960s sitcom is being reinvented, where Izzard plays Grandpa, the patriach of the Munsters who is a powerful, ancient vampire capable of shapeshifting. Al Lewis played the character in the the original series, following a family of monsters who have misadventures, never realizing why folks react to differently towards them. Also starring were Fred Gwynne, Yvonne De Carlo, Butch Patrick and Pat Priest. »

The 10 Hottest Men in "American Idol" History

14 March 2012 8:45 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

American Idol is hyped as a showcase for great vocalists who could be hitmakers. That's dishonest. American Idol, most of the time, is a showcase for hot people who want your attention. And I confess: Some of them deserve it! Today I'm counting down the ten hottest dudes ever to take the Idol stage, and I'm offering pictorial proof too! Warm up your vocal cords and prepare to sing out in ecstasy, y'all.

10. Mario Vasquez

Ok, let's make a pact: If we forget the unnerving, deeply troubling scandal that erupted around season four Top 24 competitor Mario Vazquez (which forced him to drop out of the competition), we can simply admire his boyish, sweet looks like a nicely blended oil painting. His cover of "I Love Music" is deeply underrated, by the way. Listen to that. Not the creepy other stuff.
