'Munsters' Reboot in Development at NBC With Seth Meyers Producing

Now in development, The Munsters reboot is said to be inspired by the original series, but will relocate the setting of the show from California to Brooklyn, New York, where the oddball family will try to fit in among hipsters. Her team tracked down the rights to Universal TV, where she teamed up with Late Night host Meyers, who has a producing deal at the studio.

The development "The Munsters" reboot keeps Meyers in business with NBC, where he now hosts the late-night series "Late Night with Seth Meyers".

Kargman will write the script and will executive produce with Sethmaker Shoemeyers Productions' Meyers and Mike Shoemaker.

The Hollywood Reporter confirms that The Munsters is getting a second reboot treatment, this time with NBC. In addition, the network recently ordered the Meyers-produced comedy "A.P. Bio" to series. Kargman, who also is a bestselling author, is repped by ICM Partners. The show's original family included the characters of Herman Munster and his monster-fied clan of Eddie, Lily, Grandpa, and Marilyn living in California; we're excited to see how Jill updates them for the new millennium. For those who are familiar with the original series that aired on CBS for two short seasons, between 1964 and 1966, The Munsters is beloved by almost all genre hoppers, which includes horror fans, comedy fans, and people who love great family entertainment.

This is the third possible version of The Munsters, after NBC tried to bring it back as Mockingbird Lane, a pilot executive produced by Bryan Fuller (American Gods, Hannibal) and directed by Bryan Singer - yes, the X-Men director and producer. If it hasn't been rebooted yet, it's in talks to be, and that includes some series in our very recent history.

Deadline first reported this news.
