"Mockingbird Lane": Full Pilot Revealed

From VancouerFilm.Net, Sneak Peek the complete TV pilot of NBC's now cancelled, 2012 dark comedy,"Mockingbird Lane", rebooting "The Munsters" 1960's TV series, with modern VFX.

" 'Mockingbird Lane', sweet little 'Eddie Munster' (Mason Cook) is a normal kid about to enter the horrors of puberty. Truth is, he's about to discover that for him becoming a teenager means growing hair in truly unexpected places -- as in all over his body -- every time the moon is full! Eddie's got it pretty good though. His loving, supportive, run-of-the-mill family includes his mom 'Lily' (Portia de Rossi), the daughter of 'Dracula', his dad 'Herman' (Jerry O'Connell), who brings new meaning to 'Frankenstein' and 'Grandpa(Eddie Izzard), who would give Dracula a run for his money if he weren't actually Dracula! Of course then there's creepy cousin 'Marilyn' (Charity Wakefield), who's really the odd one because she's so completely normal.

"Buying a house these days is a nightmare, so Herman and Lily are shocked that no one scooped up the rambling Victorian mansion at '1313 Mockingbird Lane' that was the site of a series of some grisly crimes. Settling into their new place, they're quickly onto the mission at hand: to gently ease Eddie into the reality of his werewolf adolescence. But it's not always so easy to accept that your child is a little different from the rest of the kids.

"Meanwhile, Herman, who works as a funeral director, is suffering from a heart condition. Since he's made up mostly of spare parts, he knew his makeshift heart would eventually give out. No worries though, because Grandpa, who is pretty good at procuring body parts, is on the case. All Herman cares about is finding a new heart with the same capacity to love Lily as much as he has for so many decades..."

Mockingbird Lane is from Bad Hat Harry Productions and Universal Television. Executive producers include Bryan Fuller, Bryan Singer and Sara Colleton. Singer also directed the pilot.
