Although the team up of director Bryan Singer and writer Bryan Fuller managed to bring The Munsters back to life in this year’s Halloween special Mockingbird Lane, the potential series didn’t spark with the network. Starring Jerry O’Connell, Portia de Rossi, Eddie Izzard, Charity Wakefield and Mason Cook, the show featured the exploits of an abnormal family and their attempts to fit in (or not) to everyday society. Mockingbird Lane was done with Fuller’s usual flair, as Pushing Daisies, Dead Like Me and Wonderfalls fans can attest to, but like those projects, this one is also dead. Hit the jump to read what Fuller said about Mockingbird Lane, along with the first few minutes of the TV special.
Here’s what Fuller had to say about the cancellation via Twitter:
I tweet with a heavy heart. NBC not moving forward with #MockingbirdLane. From producers and cast, thank you all for enthusiasm and support.
Here’s the intro scene for Mockingbird Lane below, in case you missed it earlier this year:
Did you enjoy watching the cast of The CW's 'The Flash' in all their wormhole-traveling, alternate-universe-creating hijinks, but wish there was more to see? Well then you should check out the first three seasons of 'Sliders' now streaming on Hulu.
While it's admirable to put yourself in harm's way in the defense of others, that altruism eventually ends with a blade between the ribs or being thrown into a prison cell. George R.R. Martin's gift to his characters just keeps on giving.
