The first photo is out for Bryan Fuller's remake of the classic quirky sitcom The Munsters, Mockingbird Lane. Unfortunately, it's not a cast picture (we're dying to see Eddie Izzard as Grandpa), but it does set a cartoony gothic tone — at least where the show's architecture is concerned.

EW just revealed the first picture of the Munsters' family manor, 1313 Mockingbird Lane. Head over there for a larger version of the image, as well as an interview with Fuller, in which he explains the show's tone, and the costume designs:

We're not doing bolts in the neck and Bela Lugosi. It's almost the Real Housewives of Transylvania. These are a blinged-out representation of what monsters would be doing if they lived in our society today. How they would look, how they would interact. Our wardrobe is heavily influenced by Alexander McQueen and his use of animal textures. For instance, with [the vampire] Lily, all of her wardrobe comes from nature. The first time we see her this nest of spiders weaves her dress on her body as she's standing there. We'll see ravens come in and assemble her blouse out of their feathers. We won't see animal skins because the animals are donating as opposed to dying for it. She has domain over nature and nature has a fantastic esthetic.


Between the image and these costumes, it sounds like we're in for some wonderfully, typically Fuller eye-candy. Color me excited in black with candy trim.
