Seth Myers to reboot The Munsters

Kargman is set to write the script for the upcoming Munsters series, and will executive produce alongside Meyers and his producing partner Mike Shoemaker under the Sethmaker Shoemeyers Productions banner.

The rebooted series will follow the offbeat family based on classic horror movie characters as they struggle to fit into modern day hipster Brooklyn, Deadline reported.

NBC is giving The Munsters another go. It reteamed Fred Gwynne, who played 151-year-old laboratory creation Herman Munster, with Al Lewis, who played the ancient vampire Grandpa, from the '50s comedy vehicle 54 Where Are You?

The network is now moving forward with a reboot of the 1960s oddball family drama, The Munsters. Her team tracked down the rights to Universal TV, where she teamed up with Late Night host Meyers, who has a producing deal at the studio. This is of course in contrast to the original series, which took place in the fictional California suburb Mockingbird Heights. The next in a television reboot trend that includes, but is not limited to, Roseanne, Miami Vice, and Will & Grace, is classic monster comedy series, The Munsters. Under Meyers and Kargman at NBC, the reboot will relocate from sunny Mockingbird Heights to "hipster Brooklyn" in NY.

Kargman is the creator, executive producer and star of the critically praised Bravo comedy series Odd Mom Out. Herman was married to Grandpa's daughter Lily, played by Yvonne De Carlo. It was aired as a Halloween special on NBC, with the network ultimately deciding not to order it to series. Now, it appears that the promise NBC's chief Bob Greenblatt made in 2013 to bring The Munsters back is finally happening.
