Here’s the official press release and promotional photos of NBC’s special Halloween TV series — Mockingbird Lane. This pilot episode airs on Oct.26th, Friday.
THERE IS A NEW FAMILY IN TOWN ON MOCKINGBIRD LANE AND THE NEIGHBORHOOD WILL NEVER BE THE SAME—
- Sweet little Eddie Munster (Mason Cook) is a normal kid about to enter the horrors of puberty.
- Truth is, he’s about to discover that for him becoming a teenager means growing hair in truly unexpected places — as in all over his body — every time the moon is full! Eddie’s got it pretty good though.
- His loving, supportive, run-of-the-mill family includes his mom Lily (Portia de Rossi), the daughter of Dracula.
- His dad Herman (Jerry O’Connell), who brings new meaning to “Frankenstein”;
- Grandpa (Eddie Izzard), who would give Dracula a run for his money if he weren’t actually Dracula!
- Of course then there’s creepy cousin Marilyn (Charity Wakefield), who’s really the odd one because she’s so completely normal.
