Video: SNEAK PEEK - NBC's MOCKINGBIRD LANE
Check out a new clip of the much-anticipated Halloween special MOCKINGBIRD LANE, airing on NBC Friday, 8-9 p.m. ET. The show is based on executive producer Bryan Fuller’s (PUSHING DAISIES, HEROES) script and directed by executive producer Bryan Singer (X-MEN film series, HOUSE).
MOCKINGBIRD LANE is a new reimagined version of the classic 1960s comedy THE MUNSTERS, now as a visually spectacular one-hour drama with a darker edge and tone. 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 4D) as Eddie and Charity Wakefield (THE RAVEN) as Marilyn.
“This exciting new take on a memorable series will definitely blow out conventional wisdom and create its own legacy,” said Jennifer Salke, President, NBC Entertainment. “Teaming this new show with a terrifying episode of ‘Grimm’ makes the perfect pre-Halloween fright-fest.”
In the original 1964-66 series THE MUNSTERS, the odd but lovable family lived on 1313 Mockingbird Lane.
MOCKINGBIRD LANE is from Living Dead Guy Productions, Bad Hat Harry Productions and Universal Television. Executive producers include Fuller, Singer and Sara Colleton (DEXTER). Singer also directed the pilot.
