We’ve been telling you for some time about the development of the pilot for the rebooted series The Munsters, as reimagined by Pushing Daisies creator Bryan Fuller and X-Men writer Bryan Singer. They are reportedly in the casting stage right now, but have apparently decided to recast the name as well, as The Munsters becomes Mockingbird Lane. Presumably trying to avoid the inevitable comparisons, the powers that be have not gone too far afield in their choice of replacement names. In the original series, the Munsters lived at 1313 Mockingbird Lane.
Although the new series is expected to be worlds away from the former series in tone, we’re not sure how necessary it was to change the name, but we don’t mind. Toss the old name, but keep Bryan Fuller around; some of us are still recovering from the cancellation of Pushing Daisies.
Yes, of course we’ll keep you posted.
