UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., Oct. 11 (UPI) -- NBC says it plans to air its pilot for "Mockingbird Lane," a new version of the classic American series "The Munsters," this month.

The show will debut Oct. 26 as part of a pre-Halloween Fright Night block of programming, which will also include a fresh episode of the gritty fairytale series "Grimm."

Based on executive producer Bryan Fuller's script and directed by executive producer Bryan Singer, "Mockingbird Lane" stars Jerry O'Connell, Portia de Rossi, Eddie Izzard, Mason Cook and Charity Wakefield.

"This exciting new take on a memorable series will definitely blow out conventional wisdom and create its own legacy," Jennifer Salke, president of NBC Entertainment, said in a statement Thursday. "Teaming this new show with a terrifying episode of 'Grimm' makes the perfect pre-Halloween fright-fest."
