NBC Officially Shuts Down 'The Munster' Reboot
"Mockingbird Lane" is officially dead on NBC. Following months of speculations that the network passes on the project, writer Bryan Fuller confirmed it on Thursday, December 27 as posting on his Twitter page, "I tweet with a heavy heart. NBC not moving forward with #MockingbirdLane. From producers and cast, thank you all for enthusiasm and support."
Set to serve as a reboot to 1960s' "The Munsters", the fantasy comedy had Jerry O'Connell, Portia de Rossi, Eddie Izzard and Mason Cook in its cast ensemble. The production faced a setback earlier this year due to casting issue before the principal photography finally took place in summer.
After reports spread that NBC would not pick "Mockingbird Lane" up to series, its pilot aired October 26 as a Halloween special on the network. It drew 5.4 million total viewers and a 1.5 rating in adults 18-49 demo, marking NBC's best demo performance in the time period in two years.
