Producer Bryan Fuller ("Pushing Daisies") spoke about the new show, stating: "The Munsters actually do what monsters do. They eat people and they have to live with the ramifications of being monstrous."
He added: "Everything is a metaphor for something that you can identify with in a relationship. The fact that Herman is in a constant state of decay and he's married to someone who doesn't age. We get to play with all those insecurities. The fact that he was made by his father-in-law and then has to live up to those standards; he's always trying to find his own identity."
