'The Munsters' reboot in the works

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

NBC is rebooting 1960s comedy series "The Munsters" about a family of lovable monsters with "Odd Mom Out" creator Jill Kargman.

Inspired by the original series, the half-hour single- camera show follows members of an offbeat family who are determined to stay true to themselves but struggle to fit in in hipster Brooklyn, reported Deadline.

Kargman will write the script and will executive produce with Sethmaker Shoemeyers Productions' Seth Meyers and Mike Shoemaker. Universal TV is the studio.

NBC and Universal previously took a shot at rebooting "The Munsters" several years ago as an hour-long series written by Bryan Fuller.

It resulted in the big-budget pilot "Mockingbird Lane", directed by and starring as family patriarch Herman Munster, Portia de Rossi as his wife Lily, Eddie Izzard as Grandpa and Charity Wakefield as cousin Marilyn, which aired as a Halloween special in 2012.
