NBC and Bryan Fuller are moving forward on a reboot of The Munsters TV series and we'll be hearing plenty about this show over the coming months. Most recently, director Bryan Singer (X-Men, The Usual Suspects) came on board as an executive producer and to direct the pilot episode. Now new plot details have emerged and reveal that this version of The Munsters will be quite different from the classic TV series.

According to a recent report, the show is being described as a "strange hybrid of the popular comedy Modern Family and HBO's True Blood":

"The pilot episode... will focus on 10-year-old Eddie Munster who is unaware that he's a werewolf, and that his family is composed of terrifying creatures. The madness begins when a baby bear attacks a scouting trip, only it turns out that this "bear" is actually Eddie transformed into a werewolf. Eddie is unaware of his metamorphosis and it forces the family to move in order to protect the family secret. The coming of age story gets weirder as he fights against his family when he learns of a shocker: they're a family of flesh-eaters!

A few other random character notes: Lily Munster has an eating disorder and eats suicide victims. Grandpa Munster is a 600-year-old shapeshifter, and Marilyn Munster was adopted when her mother tried to eat her as a baby."
