NBC Officially Passes on Mockingbird Lane

27 December 2012 4:20 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Mockingbird Lane proved to be a dead end.

NBC has decided not to order to series the reboot of The Munsters, which had been shepherded by Bryan Fuller (Pushing Daisies).

“I tweet with a heavy heart,” Fuller said on Thursday. “NBC not moving forward with #MockingbirdLane. From producers and cast, thank you all for enthusiasm and support.

The Mockingbird Lane pilot — which NBC aired as a pre-Halloween special — drew 5.4 million total viewers and a 1.5 rating, giving the network its best demo in the Fridays-at-8 time slot in two years. After its debut, TVLine readers gave the sneak peek an average »

12 December 2012 2:43 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Mags Bennett -- or at least the actress who played her -- is returning to FX.

Emmy winner Margo Martindale ("Justified") is joining the cast of FX's new drama "The Americans." The show stars Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys as undercover Kgb agents living in suburban Washington, D.C., in the early 1980s.

Martindale will play a fellow Kgb illegal who delivers assignments to Russell's and Rhys's characters. She'll appear in at least eight episodes of the series, which debuts Jan. 30 on FX.

Martindale won an Emmy in 2011 for her portrayal of criminal matriarch Mags Bennett on "Justified." She co-starred in another FX series, "The Riches"; her credits also include the movie "Walk Hard" and appearances on "Dexter," "Suits" and "A Gifted Man."

Here's a peek at "The Americans":

Minnie Driver Launching A Comeback In Indie Drama Return To Zero

26 November 2012 2:07 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

In the late '90s, English ingénue Minnie Driver was everywhere. After her breakout role in the charming romantic drama Circle of Friends, she tackled comedy with John Cusack in Grosse Pointe Blank. She won an Oscar nod for her heartbreaking turn opposite Matt Damon in Good Will Hunting, and she lent her voice to the plucky Jane in Disney's animated Tarzan. But in the 2000s, Driver largely took to television, offering memorable roles in sitcoms like Will & Grace and drama series like The Riches. But 2013 seems to mark a return to film for Driver, as she's recently wrapped on the horror musical Stage Fright and the promising looking rom-com I Give It a Year. And that's not all. THR has discovered Driver will headline a new indie drama called Return to Zero, which roll into production in Los Angeles this week. And from the sound of it, this »

NBC’s ‘Mockingbird Lane’ The Latest In Unordered Series Pilots As TV Specials

24 October 2012 10:24 PM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Rachel Bennett

Television Editor & Columnist

***

This Friday night, NBC will be airing a Halloween special called Mockingbird Lane, a TV movie based on the 1960s CBS comedy The Munsters.

Mockingbird Lane was not originally conceived as a movie. Instead, it was meant to be a series, but the Peacock network passed on ordering the drama to series.

Most unordered pilots disappear, never to be heard from again. It’s a rare move for NBC to show the completed pilot, but I’m glad it’s doing so.

The series is the brainchild of Bryan Fuller, the creator of ABC’s whimsical series Pushing Daisies, which ended in 2009 after two seasons. Since, Fuller worked on NBC’s eventually canceled drama Heroes, but this marks his full return to TV — and the trailer for Mockingbird Lane is reminiscent of Pushing Daisies in tone and style.

“Airing a pilot as a standalone seems unheard of, »

That didn't take long. Just days after NBC confirmed it would air Bryan Fuller's Munsters reboot Mockingbird Lane as a Halloween special, the network has released the first promo. Photos: NBC's 'Munsters': Meet the New Residents of 'Mockingbird Lane' As would be expected from the creator of Pushing Daisies, the 30-second promo is very high-concept, featuring a Lily (Arrested Development's Portia de Rossi) made of spiders and a computer-powered Herman (Crossing Jordan's Jerry O'Connell) stitched together by a fanged Grandpa Munster (The Riches' Eddie Izzard).

Mockingbird Lane Will Air as One Hour Special

12 October 2012 2:00 PM, PDT | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

It’s a good news/bad news report. Unfortunately, the bad news is that NBC has now confirmed that Mockingbird Lane, the Bryan Fuller-written-and-produced re-imagining of The Munsters, will not be produced as a series. The somewhat good news is that we don’t lose everything; the one hour pilot has been refashioned into a special, to air the Friday before Halloween.

Mr. Fuller himself tweeted this upbeat interpretation:

#Mockingbirdlane Lives!

Bryan Fuller (@BryanFuller) October 11, 2012

 

It is perhaps a remote possibility that, should the special do well, the series still could become a reality, but that is wild speculation. Here’s the press release, which also details the episode of Grimm that will follow the special, and which will feature a Latin American folk tale:

Eddie Izzard Talks Snow Globes, Sex with Trees and Finding the Truth in His Outlandish Villain in IFC's New Miniseries "Bullet in the Face"

14 August 2012 7:53 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Known for his unique, hyper-erudite, stream-of-consciousness stand-up comedy (best showcased in the 2000 concert film "Dress to Kill"), Eddie Izzard has also spent the better part of the last two decades building a very interesting career as a character actor on both stage and screen. With the exception of his leading role on the acclaimed (though short-lived) FX series "The Riches," Izzard's main strength as an actor has been in the kind of indelible supporting roles that he plays in IFC's upcoming miniseries "Bullet In The Face." "Bullet in the Face," which is being spread out over two nights on August 16th and 17th at 10pm, shares with creator Alan Spencer's previous cult classic "Sledge Hammer!" a cracked, satirical bent. It's also met with some minor controversy for its violent content -- the show's set in a comic-book-style alternate universe full of warring gangsters, tough cops, jet-black humor and...
