'The Munsters' Are Back With Guillermo del Toro's Help

October 2, 2010 (3:49 am) GMT
The popular horror movie which ran between 1964 and 1966 will be refurbished for NBC in anticipation of the upcoming Halloween.

Creepy comedy family "The Munsters" are heading back to the small screen in a new TV show with help from director Guillermo del Toro, according to U.S. reports. The original series, starring Fred Gwynne and Yvonne De Carlo, ran for two years between 1964 and 1966 and it spawned several films before it was revived in the 1980s for a spin-off called "The Munsters Today", which ended in 1991.

Now executives at Universal are reportedly planning to bring the ghoulish group back once again, with Pan's Labyrinth director Del Toro taking a behind-the-scenes role in the project. Bosses at TV network NBC are said to have commissioned a pilot episode, according to EW.com.
