Pilot Plot And Character Information For NBC's 'The Munsters' Reboot
Reported by Outsiders - 02:39 PM 2011.12.26
It appears new information has come about with the reboot of "The Munsters" for NBC with Bryan Fuller scripting the pilot and Bryan Singer directing the pilot and executive produces.
MovieHole is reporting that the show will take place around Eddie Munster's story. He’s the kind and sympathetic young pre-teen who, as we discover in the pre-credits sequence, has a “condition”. With the help of his caring parents, Herman and Lily, he soon begins to accept his hairy alter-ego.
***** BEWARE OF SPOILERS BELOW ******
The start of the pilot shows a scout camp, and the scout master has just rounded up the scouts in an effort to find out who has eaten all the boxes of food. While the token fat kid is being eyeballed, a ravaging wolf is about to crash the party…
…. next morning, a young boy wakes up naked in the woods.
After the credits…
Marilyn (the human among the Munster family) is introduced. The adopted stunner of the Munster family is negotiating to buy up a decrepit old mansion in Mockingbird Heights from an estate agent. As the blonde beauty and the all-too-honest agent (she attempts to talk Marilyn out of burning the house; the previous owner was a serial killer was poisoned hobos and it’s rumoured dead bodies may still be in the walls) talk, a construction crew, seemingly there to knock the place down, impatiently look on. But the deal is done and the wrecking ball backs off.
We discover that the Munster’s have had to move to Mockingbird Heights because of what young Eddie did in the teaser. That “baby bear” attacking the scout camp was a sign that the Munster’s needed a new address before anyone realized who was really behind all those scratches and bruises that the scouts received.
Appropriately, the Munsters arrive via crate to their new address. And they spend the first hour getting to know the locals (Grandpa licking his lips as he’s taken from house to house), hunting down a replacement ‘heart’ for the ailing Herman and largely, helping Eddie realize that he’s not a monster.
