Created by Allan Burns and Chris Hayward, The Munsters was a classic comedy series described as a satire of American suburban life. It ran on-air for 70 episodes from 1965 to 1966. Despite its short run, it received positive reviews and acclaim including a Golden Globe nomination for Best Television Series.
Last June, Rob Zombie announced that his follow-up directorial project to 3 From Hell will be a film adaptation of The Munsters which according to him, is something he has been trying to develop for 20 years.
