Bryan Singer to Helm NBC's 'The Munsters' Reboot

Bryan Singer The Munsters'X-Men' director Bryan Singer will direct NBC's 'The Munsters' reboot. 'Pushing Daisies' creator Bryan Fuller wrote the project.

According to Deadline, Singer will also serve as an executive producer on the pilot.

Fuller started work on the project in 2010, but redeveloped the reboot under NBC's new brass. The new take on 'The Munsters' will be a one-hour drama and is described as an "imaginative reinvention" of the cult-classic sitcom.

'The Munsters' ran for two seasons in the 1960s, but had a long life after the original CBS series ended. The show spawned several movies and a spin-off series, 'The Munsters Today,' that lasted from 1988-1991.

Fuller's take on the classic series will be a complete reboot of the franchise.

I have one thing to say - TV sucks nowadays. Go watch an indie film. At least you'll see some great talent that hasn't been tainted by the Hollywood execs.

Not only does this generation lack imagination and creativity. the consumer has no standards. TV programming is an insult to our intelligence. We pay premium for junk...reality shows are truly bad but paid infomercials on the cable networks that we pay for is insanely absurd. How about the religious channels? Why am I paying to have religion in my house? I don't want those channels. We should all agree to call and cancel our cable network on date certain. Boycott the crap and demand better programming.

Well you all got scammed into paying for tv that now, is no different than the regular 3-4 channels we had free for years..with plenty to watch. The really bad part is, they suckered you into your internet, tv, phone bundle as well. So if you don't want, or can't afford to pay the bill, you lose ALL 3 services.

This idea has a kiss of death that would put Lily Munster to shame. Two simple reasons: First, the idea that it would be a "drama"? Second, one full hour of it? The original worked because it was a sit-com (emphasis on the comedy) and because it was short and snappy half-hour episodes. (Basic rule: "Short is good, funny is better, short and funny is best.")

No, don't do it! Remakes lack everything that made the TV show or movie memorable!

Writers these days have no brains at all. All they can do is remake everything that used to be good get a brain writers.

Now, don't put all of us in that category, please- lol. I do agree with you, though - 100%. Remakes are no more than legal plagerization. At least the fad of Reality TV is dwindling away... and quickly. Hopefully, one day soon, we will have original shows on our primetime line-up again, once the TV singing contest shows get out of the way.
