‘The Munsters’ Reboot In Works At NBC From Jill Kargman & Seth Meyers


http://deadline.com/2017/08/the-munsters-reboot-nbc-jill-kargman-seth-meyers-1202146048/

Inspired by the original series, the half-hour single-camera The Munsters, now in development, follows members of an offbeat family who are determined to stay true to themselves but struggle to fit in in hipster Brooklyn. (In the original, the Munsters resided at the famous 1313 Mockingbird Lane address in the city of Mockingbird Heights, a fictional suburb in California.)

Jill Kargman will write the script and will executive produce with Sethmaker Shoemeyers Productions’ Meyers and Mike Shoemaker. Universal TV is the studio.

I hear the project originated with Kargman, who came up with a new take on the classic sitcom, which ran on CBS for two seasons from 1964-66. Her team tracked down the rights to Universal TV, where she teamed up with Late Night host Meyers, who has a producing deal at the studio.

Is this still happening? I hope not and somebody's had the good sense to put the idea to bed. Resurrecting old classics never works, and it's about time these producers and writers started earning their crust by coming up with original ideas. You'll never beat the original Munsters, nobody could replace Fred Gwynne.

Never works??? You have no idea do you?

You must be a very sad and lonely person to spend your time being rude to strangers on the internet.
I feel for you, but don't lose hope, I'm sure someone will agree to sleep with you one day. Probably.
I wouldn't bet money on it though.
Now, where's the ignore button.... bye troll.

They've tried doing reboots before and both failed 1987 & 2012, 2012 is not all that long ago.

Nothing there, so I assume it's dead. Kargman has little experience.
