Photo Flash: First Look - Cheyenne Jackson in NBC's MOCKINGBIRD LANE
MOCKINGBIRD LANE based on Fuller’s (“Pushing Daisies,” “Heroes”) script and directed by executive producer Bryan Singer (“X-Men” film series, “House”), is a re-imagined version of the classic 1960s comedy “The Munsters.” It will air as a Halloween special on Friday, October 26 on NBC (8-9 p.m. ET).
The cast includes Jerry O’Connell (“The Defenders”) as Herman Munster, PORTIA DE ROSSI (“Arrested Development”) as his wife Lily, Eddie Izzard (“United States of Tara,” “The Riches”) as Grandpa, Mason Cook (‘Spy Kids: All the Time in the World in 4D”) as Eddie and Charity Wakefield(“The Raven”) as Marilyn.
In “Mockingbird Lane,” sweet little Eddie Munster (Cook) is a normal kid about to enter the horrors of puberty. Truth is, he’s about to discover that for him becoming a teenager means growing hair in truly unexpected places -- as in all over his body -- every time the moon is full! Eddie’s got it pretty good though. His loving, supportive, run-of-the-mill family includes his mom Lily (de Rossi), the daughter of Dracula; his dad Herman (O’Connell), who brings new meaning to “Frankenstein”; and Grandpa (Izzard), who would give Dracula a run for his money if he weren’t actually Dracula! Of course then there’s creepy cousin Marilyn (Wakefield), who’s really the odd one because she’s so completely normal.
