Singer to Direct, Producer “The Munsters”
Bryan Singer will direct the pilot and serve as a producer for NBC’s proposed reboot of The Munsters.
The project, which received a pilot order earlier this month, is billed as an imaginative reinvention of the classic comedy series as a visually spectacular one-hour drama.
Singer will executive produce alongside Bryan Fuller (Dead Like Me, Pushing Daisies), who also is writing the Universal Television-produced project.
Fuller and NBC first made an attempt to revive the 1960s CBS sitcom last year, with the network ultimately passing. His newer version is said to be an edgier and slightly darker take exploring origins of Herman and Lily Munster and how they arrived at the famed 1313 Mockingbird Lane address.
