NBC to air Mockingbird Lane pilot as TV special

Well, as previously thought, the NBC Munsters reboot Mockingbird Lane is dead. At least mostly dead.

NBC has decided to air the already-produced pilot, however, as one-hour TV special ob Friday, October 26th, at 8/7c, as a lead-in to a Halloween-themed episode of Grimm.

The pilot, produced by Bryan Fuller (Pushing Daisies), stars Jerry O’Connell (Herman Munster), Portia de Rossi (Lily Munster) and Eddie Izzard (Grandpa), and reportedly cost $10 million to make. A series is still possible but is considered a huge longshot, and would depend on massive ratings – and if the network wants that, they’d better start pushing the publicity bandwagon.
