They want a dark and gritty version of… THE MUNSTERS.

Via GeekTyrant: “The project is titled 1313, and it is described as “a horror series that plays on the Universal Monsterverse, aka a darker reimagining of the 1964 classic sitcom The Munsters.”” …And GeekTyrant doesn’t understand why, either. That takes some doing! The folks over there are even more cheerfully forgiving of movies than I am, which is why I read them. It takes a lot for them to go, “NO!” and smack somebody on the nose with a rolled-up newspaper.

:shaking my head: Just because you can do something doesn’t mean that you should. I know that’s a platitude, but it’s also correct.
