'The Munsters' Reboot In Works At NBC From Jill Kargman & Seth Meyers

According to Deadline, Meyers, formerly of Saturday Night Live and now of Late Night with Seth Meyers, is executive producing The Munsters reboot for NBC through his production company Sethmaker Shoemeyers Productions. Remember 2012's ill-fated Mockingbird Lane starring Jerry O'Connell as Herman? No? The original series followed a family of monsters and starred Fred Gwynne, Yvonne De Carlo, Al Lewis, Butch Patrick, and Pat Priest.

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