NBC developing 'Munsters' reboot with Seth Meyers

NBC developing 'Munsters' reboot with Seth Meyers

Seth Meyers has been tapped to produce the show alongside co-creator Jill Kargman, Deadline reported.

This will be the second attempt to reboot the show and producers will reportedly be doing a new take on the sitcom, which will feature the offbeat, lovable monster family, just trying to fit in, while the hipster culture moves into Brooklyn around them.

In 2012, NBC and Universal attempted to reboot the property under the helm of Star Trek: Discovery's Bryan Fuller. It reteamed Fred Gwynne, who played 151-year-old laboratory creation Herman Munster, with Al Lewis, who played the ancient vampire Grandpa, from the '50s comedy vehicle 54 Where Are You?

Unless you were alive in the late 1960s you may not know much about the classic series, The Munsters. For those who are familiar with the original series that aired on CBS for two short seasons, between 1964 and 1966, The Munsters is beloved by almost all genre hoppers, which includes horror fans, comedy fans, and people who love great family entertainment. 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.

This data was cross referenced with mortality data from 2011 from the National Center for Health Statistics. Another study published earlier this year, found no connection between cardiovascular health and cannabis.

Kargman was the one to come up with the new idea, and she later teamed up with Meyers and NBC.

There's no word yet on when we'll get to see the new Munsters, but Kargman is writing the first script. The series' episodes will be a half hour long. Jerry O'Connell played Herman Munster with Portia de Rossi as Lily, Eddie Izzard as Grandpa and Charity Wakefield as cousin Marilyn.

The show aired as a Halloween special and was not ordered to series.
