NBC Unhappy With ‘Mockingbird Lane’ Pilot; Could Become a TV Movie [Updated]
[UPDATE: NBC will air the Mockingbird Lane pilot as a Halloween special.]
Where there’s smoke, there’s fire, and Bryan Fuller’s Mockingbird Lane does indeed appear to be stuck in a rough patch, following last week’s reports that NBC plans to pass on the series. Fuller’s reboot/re-invention of The Munsters is not being labeled a disaster (like David E. Kelley’s Wonder Woman last year), but the network heads are nonetheless reported as close to giving up on the whole venture.
NBC’s primary concern is recouping its $10 million investment on Mockingbird Lane, now that it’s (apparently) all but official that Fuller’s pilot isn’t going to be picked up. One option on the table is to turn the unaired pilot into either a TV movie or a Halloween special (to air later this month or October of next year).
