Earlier today we posted an article about how AMC seems unable to make up its mind about what to do with series. And while AMC does appear to have a bit of a case of not knowing what to do tomorrow, it comes nowhere near the level of mind changing that NBC does.
Case in point is 'Mockingbird Lane,' the revamp they created of 1960s CBS sitcom 'The Munsters.' The series, developed by the creator of 'Pushing Daisies' and 'Dead Like Me,' Bryan Fuller, was ordered by NBC in November 2011 and in January of this year they announced it would be called 'Mockingbird Lane,' after the residence of the Munster family. The series would be a drama with stunning visuals and much darker and edgier than 'The Munsters' was.
Except NBC got cold feet. After saying they would not air the pilot, they changed course and aired it as a lead in to 'Grimm.' And it did pretty well, as its airing on October 26 was viewed by 5.47 million people.
Not enough to save the series though, as Fuller tweeted today that "I tweet with a heavy heart. NBC not moving forward with #MockingbirdLane. From producers and cast, thank you all for enthusiasm and support."
