'The Munsters' to be resurrected – Again?

munsters_1According to Entertainment Weekly, Bryan Fuller (PUSHING DAISIES) is working on a modern-day take on the 1960’s TV sit-com THE MUNSTERS for NBC.
Apparently the network, now a part of Universal,  has ordered a pilot. It seems to be a real “re-imagining “,  as it’s being described as “MODERN FAMILY meets TRUE BLOOD.”
I’ll let that pass without comment for now, other than the obvious why use  the name if you intend to change the basic concept?
Then again, who though a dark,  serious BATTLESTAR GALACTICA would be a hit?
