With construction already underway on its sets, NBC’s Munsters reboot Mockingbird Lane is moving a few last pieces into place for its main cast. Jerry O’Connell and Mariana Klaveno have just been cast as Herman and Lily Munster in the Bryan Fuller-created show, joining previously cast stars Eddie Izzard (Grandpa), Charity Wakefield (Marilyn), and Mason Cook (Eddie).

There is one big question mark hanging over the news, however — Klaveno’s involvement is contingent on her ability to work out a deal with ABC Studios, who has her contracted for its upcoming Marc Cherry soap Devious Maids. More details after the jump.

The latest development in this sad Dan Harmon / Community saga is a leaked memo from NBC instructing the shows actors on how to handle the topic while speaking to the public. Honestly, it’s not so much that the note itself is unreasonable or dishonest, but that now it’ll be tough not to listen for these same talking points when we see Joel McHale or Alison Brie field questions about it on some late night talk show.

Happily, the rest of today’s TV Bits are a little more cheerful:

  • NBC’s Mockingbird Lane casts a Spy Kid as its Eddie Munster
  • HBO Zone announces a Game of Thrones Season 2 marathon
  • Starz hopes you’ll tune in to its Spartacus marathon a few days later
  • True Blood‘s new promo has lots of sex and violence

While most people would agree Scott Stewart‘s 2010 film Legion isn’t exactly a masterful piece of cinema, the film’s idea is rock solid. God has decided to smite humanity and sends his legions of angels down upon us. It’s then up to a rogue angel to help a group of strangers make their last stand. The film doesn’t quite live up to that cool log line but maybe, when it’s adapted to TV, it will. Stewart is now developing the film into a TV series on SyFy.

In other TV news the Bryan Singer/Bryan Fuller produced Munsters pilot, Mockingbird Lane, has been delayed so improvements could be made. Read more about both stories after the jump. Read More »
