We reported last week that NBC’s remake of “The Munsters”, “Mockingbird Lane”, has officially been nixed before the pilot even aired. But fear not, Herman groupies! Instead of completely losing its investment, NBC has decided to air the pilot episode as a Halloween special!
Today, we have the first 30-second spot for the special, and I have to admit, it actually does look like it has potential! Yes, the only three funny lines are uttered by Eddie Izzard’s Grandpa, but mix those with the intense makeup, costumes and scenery, and you got something that I’d at least take a glance at!
Check out the spot below, which features Jerry O’Connell as Herman, Izzard as Grandpa, Mason Cook as Eddie and Charity Wakefield as Marilyn, and let us know if you feel the same way.
The pilot, aka Halloween special for “Mockingbird Lane” will air October 26th at 8pm on NBC.
