This is just speculation on my part but I have a strong feeling that , for obvious reasons, Anna Friel will be cast as Lily.

It's only a hunch though.

There have been good comedy ensembles in modern times. The casts of "Married... With Children," "Seinfeld," and "The Big Bang Theory," spring to mind. And, I can think of one modern comedy team that I could always rely on for laughs: Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith (Jay & Silent Bob).
 
However, I still believe this reboot of "The Munsters" will suck out loud.

As others have noted the need for a comedy team with this reboot will most likely not be necessary as they aren't going with the comedic tone of the original series!

This is an article/casting call from http://www.2012auditions.com/~

"The rumors have finally breached a decision by NBC execs. Yes, it’s true “The Munsters” are coming to a TV screen near you! The remake of the unforgettable tale, after more than 20 years of sleep is back! Executive producers at NBC are headlining the series premiere regardless of the unsuccessful remakes of shows such as “Hawaii Five-O” and “Charlie’s Angels”. For those of you that are not familiar with the infamous TV Series “The Munsters” let’s recap!

The 1960’s drama was an American family sitcom that illustrated the life at home of a family of monsters. “The Munsters” starred Yvonne De Carlo as Lily Monster, wife of Fred Gwynne who was Herman Munster. Every typical monster movie during that time was surpassed with this hit TV sitcom. The only other competition of its time was “The Addams Family”. These same comical monsters are now coming back to primetime television by the writer Bryan Fuller, who is responsible for “Pushing Daisies” and recently the TV Series “Heroes”, where he is co-executive producer and writer.

The new adaptation of “The Munsters” will be a TV series that runs an hour long weekly, and will address the tale on how the Munsters family came to be. The series will be set off once the Munsters wake up from their 20 year sleep. In the process of the project being impacted by NBC producers and their decision to possibly also headline a remake of Frankenstein, the producers of “The Munsters” are determined to have a successful run with their first season.

Casting directors are now on their own ‘Munster Hunt’ for the perfect cast! Since there is no recent rumor of NBC backing out of the deal, casting calls are under way. Main characters and extras will be cast over the next few months and the first season is already set to shoot. 6 roles in particular are being cast for a filming that will start in February. They are looking for quality actors, and talent of all shapes and sizes and age groups to fit Fullers creative character breakdowns. Some A-List actors are in the process of being cast for the roles, but everyone will get a fighting chance to be on this matchless re-make of the 1960’s TV Series “The Munsters”."

As far as Anna Friel, it is quite possible (having worked with Fuller on Pushing Daisies) although she is currently on Public Enemies.  I don't watch Public Enemies so I'm not sure if she is a permanent character or just part of a story arc!?

The Munsters awake after a 20 year sleep.

Its been done.

In 1988

The Munsters Today Official Pilot 1988 (Part 1 of 2)


Moderately bad.

But about 3 minutes in, when the Crayola color scheme kicks in . . . :P
Somehow, I never envisioned Herman as guacamole green or Marilyn wearing canary yellow.

I remember hating this show, maybe watched it once...probably didn't even finish the episode but I still enjoyed the two made for tv movies; Here Come the Munsters and The Munsters' Scary Little Christmas.  While definitely not better, or even as good as, the original series neither tv special was the disaster like The Munsters Today!  That mention of the Munsters waking up after a 20 year sleep is the first reference I've seen connecting it to this project??!?

>So, Craig. Any modern examples you can think of?<

Sure. Zirock mentioned some great ensembles; I'd add the casts of THE OFFICE and EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND - where I think the duo of Romano and Garrett were terrific (as were Seinfeld & Alexander, in their show.)

>But about 3 minutes in, when the Crayola color scheme kicks in . . .

The orginal MUNSTERS did ther pilot, the feature, and the tv movie sequel in color.

 Iam curious if this tv show will have the same theme song as the tv show, and if so will it be more heavier ? And it would'nt be complete unless you have the famous Munster Coach, i would hope this show will have a custom car that resembles the original built by George Barris.

Point taken on Romano & Garret and Seinfeld & Alexander. Although, I could never stand to watch The Office.

I am aware of the color productions with the original cast. Sure Herman Lily and Grandpa were greenish which was especially noticeable in Munster Go Home
However, the intensity of the colors in the 1988 attempt is especially annoying.  It just has the reek of a cheap throw together program.

Oh, not denying that!

A lot of the cheap syndicated video comedies of that era are pretty weak beer.

This may be the only highlight from any of the Munsters redoes.

Though his film itself was only "eh," I think Ed Herrmann has been the best sequel Herman.

Reading that they are going with, Mockingbird Lane as the shows title!  Which I don't find all that bad of an idea (although a bit soap opera-ish) since it will further separate it from the original Munsters.

In the Munster Christmas movie, they made a few changes to a T-Bucket Street rod, and tried to pass it off as the Munster Koach.  Of course they were careful that you didn't get a good look at the car.  If their going to attempt a Munster reboot, I would hope the Koach would be used.  Considering how doubtful it is that they'll use the original Munster house, maybe they could use the replica built in Texas for the exterior shots.  I too am glad it's being called Mockingbird Lane, the same as I'm glad they  called the Tim Burton film "Charlie and the Chocolate factory", to distinguish between the new version and the original.

Or did Burton call it Charlie and the Chocolate Factory because that was the original title of the book by Roald Dahl?

Chicken or the Egg? :-\
