NBC Releases 'Mockingbird Lane' Stills In Advance of Halloween Air Date

Following yesterday's news that NBC would be airing the pilot for its canceled Munsters reboot Mockingbird Lane on October 26th, the network has dropped a batch of stills to either whet your appetite or satisfy your morbid curiosity.

You can check them out after the jump, along with the official synopsis for the show.

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 grisly hobo murders. 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.

Presumably, NBC is looking to recoup their losses on the reported $10 million project. Presumably, they're trying to avoid an Aquaman or Locke & Key situation where they're sitting on a pilot that people might be curious about that will never see the light of day in a wider setting.

What do you think? Did the money go into the production? How do you like Jerry O'Connell's neck scars, or Eddie Izzard's elaborate vampire Grandpa?

Don't forget, you can catch Mockingbird Lane on Friday, October 26th at 8:00 on NBC.
