Lately, all networks and streaming platforms want to do is reboot old, beloved television series—not just prestige shows like Twin Peaks, but half-hour sitcoms, too. From Fuller House to Will & Grace and Roseanne, the competition for viewers' eyeballs is relying on nostalgia, and the latest revival is The Munsters. NBC is reportedly working on a reboot with Jill Kargman and Seth Meyers, and the 2017 twist is... the Munsters will be living in Brooklyn.

According to Deadine's Nellie Andreeva, the single-camera remake (not the first attempt to bring it back to life) is now in development, and "follows members of an offbeat family who are determined to stay true to themselves but struggle to fit in in hipster Brooklyn."

Kargman will write the script and will executive produce with Sethmaker Shoemeyers Productions’ Meyers and Mike Shoemaker. Universal TV is the studio. I hear the project originated with Kargman, who came up with a new take on the classic sitcom, which ran on CBS for two seasons from 1964-66. 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 original Munsters lived at 1313 Mockingbird Lane in the fictional California city of Mockingbird Heights. The series featured a family of benign monsters (this was during the era of "weird family" shows like The Addams Family)—Fred Gwynne as dad Herman Munster, Yvonne De Carlo as his wife, Lily Munster, Al Lewis as Grandpa, Beverly Owen (later Pat Priest) as their teenage niece Marilyn, and Butch Patrick as son Eddie Munster.

It seems like this family of trailblazing monsters would fit right in with hipster Brooklyn—we could totally see Lily Munster enjoying a knife skills class at the Meat Hook, Eddie going to St. Ann's, Marilyn attached to a selfie stick, and Herman Munster growing a beard.
