Munsters Return

NBC is reviving the classic CBS series


Crank up the ol' surf guitar music: "The Munsters" is coming back to network television—and moving to "hipster-infested" Brooklyn.

NBC is reviving the classic CBS series that aired in glorious black and white from 1964-66.

No word yet on when the show will premiere or who will play Herman and Lily Munster, the very odd couple made famous by Fred Gwynne and Yvonne De Carlo. But the reboot will be set in oh-so-suddenly trendy Brooklyn, the New York borough that won't even flinch at the sight of 1313 Mockingbird Lane. The original Munsters—including Eddie, Grandpa and freakishly normal Marilyn—lived in a fictional California suburb.

The pilot is being written by Jill Kargman, the creator and star of Bravo's "Odd Mom Out." She will also serve as executive producer, along with "Late Night" host and SNL alumnus Seth Meyers.
