NBC delays ‘Munsters’ pilot ‘Mockingbird Lane’

NBC is taking a hourlong pilot order based on “The Munsters” franchise out of the running for the fall 2012-13 schedule in order to give it extra attention, according to sources.

Now called “Mockingbird Lane,” the pilot was ordered last November from Universal Television and creator Bryan Fuller (“Pushing Daisies”). Shooting has been pushed to the summer, which means “Lane” will be considered for next midseason.

Sources say the network felt the series needed more time to get the elements just right for what NBC envisions being a key project for them.

A Peacock spokesman declined comment.
