Producer/director Bryan Singer has signed on to direct and executive produce NBC's The Munsters.

The project is described as an imaginative reinvention of the classic comedy series as a visually spectacular one-hour drama.

Bryan Fuller has reimagined the new version which is said to be an edgier and slightly darker take exploring origins of Herman and Lily Munster (originally played by Fred Gwynne and Yvonne De Carlo) and how they arrived at the famed 1313 Mockingbird Lane address.

The original Munsters, produced by Universal Studios, aired 70 episodes from 1964-66 on CBS.
