With a date set, NBC has begun the promo push for the "Munsters" aborted reboot pilot turned Halloween special "Mockingbird Lane" starting with some new photos.
Producer Bryan Fuller also tells Dread Central that all hope is not lost on the project becoming a series.
Should enough viewers tune in, the possibility still exists and NBC could move quickly. Those involved have charted out a six-episode arc and have outlines for three episodes at present.
Fuller's commitments to his "Hannibal" series end mid-February and, if 'Mockingbird' gets the go ahead, he would jump onto it immediately after to prepare a first season shoot in July ahead of a Fall 2013 premiere.
