The reboot will follow the Munsters, an offbeat family who is struggling to fit in hipster Brooklyn as they are determined to stay true to themselves.
NBC is rebooting one of the most popular sitcoms, "The Munsters". According to Deadline, the reboot of the 1960s show will be getting help from Seth Meyers and "Odd Mom Out" star and creator Jill Kargman.
The new take on the classic show will follow the Munsters, an offbeat family. On the original series, the family resided at the famous 1313 Mockingbird Lane address in the city of Mockingbird Heights, a fictional suburb in California. However, the new series will see the family struggling to fit in hipster Brooklyn as they are determined to stay true to themselves.
Kargman is set to pen the script as well as executive produce alongside Sethmaker Shoemeyers Productions' Meyers and Mike Shoemaker. The site reports that idea to revive the show originated with Kargman.
This marks the second attempt for NBC to bring back the series to life. Back in 2012, the network planned to revive "The Munster", with "Hannibal" and "American Gods" showrunner Bryan Fuller directing. Titled "Mockingbird Lane", the series was set to star Jerry O'Connell, Portia de Rossi and Eddie Izzard. However, NBC decided not to move forward with the project.
The original series ran from 1964 to 1966 on CBS before it was canceled due to low ratings. However, the show became a cultural icon due to its unique premise as it replaced humans with monsters in a typical family sitcom.
