'The Munsters' Reboot Coming, Seth Meyers Attached To The Project

According to Deadline, NBC is developing yet another reboot of the "60s "horror"-comedy series The Munsters from Late Night host Seth Meyers and Odd Mom Out creator Jill Kargman".

Kargman will write the script and executive produce with Sethmaker Shoemeyers Productions.

The new Munsters series will gain inspiration from the original, but the half-hour single-camera sitcom is making one major change to the classic family -NBC is taking The Munsters to NY.

The development "The Munsters" reboot keeps Meyers in business with NBC, where he now hosts the late-night series "Late Night with Seth Meyers". (Even though the idea of Hipster Brooklyn is a little 2005, though that hasn't stopped TV Land's Younger.) This isn't the first attempt to reboot The Munsters, either. The next in a television reboot trend that includes, but is not limited to, Roseanne, Miami Vice, and Will & Grace, is classic monster comedy series, The Munsters. At that point she turned to Meyers to help EP the show seeing as he already had a producing deal with Universal TV. Under Meyers and Kargman at NBC, the reboot will relocate from sunny Mockingbird Heights to "hipster Brooklyn" in NY.

Created by Allan Burns and Chris Hayward, the original The Munsters ran for seventy episodes across two seasons from 1964 to 1966. After a false start a few years back, the Munsters are finally returning to the small screen - and 1313 Mockingbird Lane is apparently moving postcodes. The pilot featured Eddie Izzard, Jerry O'Connell, and Portia De Rossi as the Munster family, and was directed by X-Men's Bryan Singer.

"I won't say we won't do another version of The Munsters again", NBC chief Bob Greenblatt said in January 2013.
