One of the most anticipated television shows being made right now is “Mockingbird Lane,” a dramatic reboot of the classic 1960s sitcom “The Munsters.” Information about the Bryan Fuller-created show has been a little scarce, but now we’ve got some brand new casting news to report!
According to various outlets including The Hollywood Reporter, Jerry O’Connell has been cast as Herman Munster, the Frankenstein-esque patriarch of the Munster family. Also, according to Entertainment Weekly, the pilot of the show involves Herman, a monster made up of dead body parts, needing a new heart and finding a living “donor.”
According to Fuller, the show is aiming to be a magical, yet, horror-based show the whole family can watch. “We want this show to be an American Harry Potter,” he told Entertainment Weekly. “To have that sense of a magical world that you get to go to with your family and find stories told in a fantastical way that are instantly relatable. It’s an ‘American Horror Story’ that the whole family can watch.”
It has also been announced that comedian Eddie Izzard has been cast to play the role of Grandpa Herman, a vampire.
