Bryan Singer set to helm The Munsters on NBC

Posted on November 30, 2011 by admin | No Comments

Attempting to legitimize a concept that was universally panned a couple weeks back when it was announced, it sounds like NBC and Bryan Fuller (creator of Pushing Daisies) have brought Bryan Singer on board to direct and exec produce a TV reboot to The Munsters.

Damn it. As much as I want to write this one off as a dumb idea and already commit myself to hating it when it pops up next pilot season, Singer has earned my respect his role in the X-Men series and had a similar type of relationship with the pilot/creation of House as he will with The Munsters. AND, while I didn’t watch Pushing Daisies, it looked pretty damn cool and everyone who did watch it dug it.

But then there’s that whole fact that they are turning The Munsters into an hour-long drama that supposedly plays to the Twilight crowd… which reminds me of MTV’s bastardization of Teen Wolf… which I won’t watch out of principle because there’s no van surfing.

What do you think about this Munsters business? Be a doll and write a comment.
