Another upcoming TV show from NBC which is also gaining a lot of attention is Bryan Singer’s Munsters reboot Mockingbird Lane. And here we have some information regarding who will play the ever beautiful Marilyn Munster.
According to Deadline, British actress Charity Wakefield (pictured right) is set to star in the TV show as Marilyn Munster where she will co-star along side Eddie Izzard as he portrays Grandpa.
“Wakefield will play Marilyn, Lily’s beautiful niece and the only “normal” Munster (which makes her rather abnormal). Saved from being devoured by her own mother as an infant, she lives with the Munsters but has not inherited any of their special attributes. A college student who believes in good manners and congeniality toward the new neighbors, she regularly clashes with Grandpa (Izzard), but she gets along well with Aunt Lily and Uncle Herman, as well as with her young cousin Eddie.”
The pilot episode is set to be written by Bryan Fuller and directed by Bryan Singer.
Mockingbird Lane is being described as a reinvention of the 1960’s classic sitcom The Munsters. It is said to feature striking visuals in the vein of Bryan Singer’s other show “Pushing Daises”.
