NBC gives Revolution full season order, but won’t pick up Munsters reboot, Mockingbird Lane

NBC is starting it’s back-end pick ups of freshman series, and Revolution made the cut, getting a full-season order. Although not doing spectacular in the live ratings, it is apparently NBC’s most time-shifted (people watching later on DVRs) show.
However, those looking forward NBC’s reboot of the classic comedy The Munsters (which was going by the title Mockingbird Lane, referring to the street the Munsters lived on) will get no joy, as it appears that NBC has chosen to pass on the series after the pilot. I was originally very skeptical of the show, but after landing Eddie Izzard as Grampa I thought it could have been interesting. No idea if they plan to air or release the pilot.
Update: Maybe Mockingbird Lane isn’t dead. At least according to producer Bryan Fuller on Twitter: NBC just informed me the Deadline article regarding #MockingbirdLane was Dead Wrong. Stay tuned for updates!
