NBC is taking another look at a remake of 1960s sitcom The Munsters.
Pushing Daisies creator Bryan Fuller first developed a The Munsters revival last year, but NBC ultimately passed on the script. But NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt liked the general idea and has asked Fuller to rework the script.
While the original was a half-hour sitcom led by Fred Gwynne and Yvonne de Carlo, the new version will be an edgier, slightly darker hour-long show (or just a longer Addams Family?).
Fuller (Heroes, Wonderfalls and Dead Like Me) is expected to explore the origins of how the residents of 1313 Mockingbird Lane came to be.
Universal Studios produced the original Munsters on CBS from 1964 to 1966.
This week CBS indicated it is considering a new take on Bewitched.
