TV: Character Details And Plot For THE MUNSTERS

Bloody-Disgusting has shared some cool news today for NBC's upcoming remake of THE MUNSTERS. first off NBC has began casting for the reboot that will center around Eddie Munster, a coming of age story, kinda.

This TV reboot will not be a comedy like the light-hearted 60's comedy starring Fred Gwynne, in fact it'll be much darker in tone. We've already reported that Bryan Singer (X-Men 1&2, Superman Lives) will direct the pilot and executive produce the series along side Bryan Fuller (Pushing Daisies) who is spear heading this project.

So what's new over at 1313 Mockingbird Lane you ask?

From Bloody-Disgusting:
The Munsters will focus on 10-year-old Eddie Munster who is unaware that he's a werewolf, and that his family is composed of terrifying creatures. The madness begins when a baby bear attacks a scouting trip, only it turns out that this "bear" is actually Eddie transformed into a werewolf. Eddie is unaware of his metamorphosis and it forces the family to move in order to protect the family secret. The coming of age story gets weirder as he fights against his family when he learns of a shocker: they're a family of flesh-eaters!
A few other random character notes: Lily Munster has an eating disorder and eats suicide victims. Grandpa Munster is a 600-year-old shapeshifter, and Marilyn Munster was adopted when her mother tried to eat her as a baby.
This sounds very Buffy like and i'm interested to see how this turns out. Are you down for this or do you think it's a waist?
