Jerry O'connell - The Munsters Re-boot Officially Axed

Jerry O'connell and Portia De Rossi's reboot of classic Tv show The Munsters has officially been axed despite drawing millions of viewers over Halloween.

The cult 1960s series was revived as Mockingbird Lane starring O'Connell as Herman Munster, De Rossi as his vampire bride Lily, and Eddie Izzard as Grandpa Munster.

However, bosses at American network Nbc had a mixed reaction to the finished product and put the sitcom on the back burner.

They aired the pilot episode as a Halloween special in the U.S. in October (12), drawing more than 5.4 million viewers, but Tv executives have now decided to axe the project for good.

Creator/executive producer Bryan Fuller confirmed the news in a post on Twitter.com, writing, "I tweet with a heavy heart. Nbc not moving forward with Mockingbird Lane. From producers and cast, thank you all for enthusiasm and support."
