Deadline reports that Odd Mom Out creator Jill Kargman and comedian/television host Seth Meyers have teamed with Universal TV for a reboot of The Munsters.
This will be the second attempt to reboot the show and producers will reportedly be doing a new take on the sitcom, which will feature the offbeat, lovable monster family, just trying to fit in, while the hipster culture moves into Brooklyn around them.

ENERGY: Benchmark U.S. crude lost 23 cents to $48.94 per barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. USA crude CLcv1 rose 1.08 percent to $49.70 per barrel and Brent LCOcv1 was last at $52.78, up 1.23 percent on the day.
The development "The Munsters" reboot keeps Meyers in business with NBC, where he now hosts the late-night series "Late Night with Seth Meyers". It will be a half-hour, single-camera series, similar to the original 1960s comedy it's inspired by. At that point she turned to Meyers to help EP the show seeing as he already had a producing deal with Universal TV.
There's no word yet on when we'll get to see the new Munsters, but Kargman is writing the first script. The network previously attempted a Munsters revival (titled Mockingbird Lane, written by American Gods' Bryan Fuller, and starring Jerry O'Connell as Herman Munster) back in 2012, but ended up airing the pilot as a standalone Halloween special instead. The original Munsters lived at 1313 Mockingbird Lane in the fictional California city of Mockingbird Heights.

The Munsters is perhaps one of the most well-known horror-comedy shows to come out of the post-golden age of television, an era which also featured The Addams Family that aired during the same two years. Herman was married to Grandpa's daughter Lily, played by Yvonne De Carlo. AT the time (January 2013), NBC chief executive Robert Greenblatt said: "I won't say we won't do another version of The Munsters again".
