A reboot of the classic sitcom “The Munsters” is in the works at NBC. The planned reboot is inspired by the original series and will follow an offbeat family determined to stay true to themselves struggles to fit in in hipster Brooklyn. Jill Kargman will executive produce and write the script, with Seth Meyers and Mike Shoemaker also executive producing. The original series aired for two seasons and 70 episodes from 1964-1966. It starred Fred Gwynne as the Frankenstein’s monster father figure Herman Munster, Yvonne De Carlo as mom and bride of Frankenstein Lily Munster, Al Lewis as vampire Grandpa Munster, Beverly Owen (and later Pat Priest) as their normal teenage niece Marilyn, and Butch Patrick as the werewolf son Eddie Munster. “The Munsters” now is reverting to its original half-hour comedy format albeit as a single-camera vs. the multi-camera original.
