It really pays to know Bryan Fuller. Not only has the one-time 'Pushing Daisies' producer cast a number of his past stars in NBC's upcoming Hannibal Lecter adaptation 'Hannibal,' but he even provided a role for comedian Eddie Izzard! The UK star has previously been attached to Fuller's other NBC effort 'Mockingbird Lane' as Grampa Munster, though NBC passed on the series and burned off its pilot as a "Halloween Special." Find out Izzard's ripping new 'Hannibal' role inside!

For as much as we might have liked to see Bryan Fuller's 'Mockingbird Lane' be given a chance at a full series, likely the most intriguing of the director's upcoming efforts is that of 'Hannibal,' a modern prequelized take on the relationship between the iconic Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen), and up and coming FBI agent Will Graham (Hugh Dancy).  The first photos of Mikkelsen's Hannibal have been revealed, but how do they taste to fans of the classic films?

While we'll at least get to see what NBC and Bryan Fuller came up with in re-imagining 'The Munsters' as 'Mockingbird Lane' when the network airs the pilot as a Halloween special this Friday, there's a tinge of disappointment that the show mostly likely won't go to series.  Even though the concept sounded a bit lame at first, the first images and footage of show provided an intriguing, more stylized take on the classic characters, so what about the latest clip updates 'The Munsters' in a clever way?

Well, that certainly won't be a stretch. As NBC's Bryan Fuller-adapted 'Hannibal' continues casting toward its mid-season 2013 premiere, the core roster of characters around the good Dr. Lecter seems more and more intriguing. We've known for sometime that former 'The Matrix' and 'CSI' star Laurence Fishburne would take the role of FBI director Jack Crawford, but now we've learned he'll get to star opposite his own wife! Who will former 'Firefly' and current 'Suits' star Gina Torres play in the 'Hannibal' universe?

It's one of those things that doesn't feel real until you've actually seen footage. After all, there's no way to know for sure that NBC spent $10 million on a pilot/Halloween special remake of 'The Munsters' until you've seen actual evidence with your own two eyes. Alas, the first teaser for 'Mockingbird Lane' has arrived proving that yes, someone thought remaking the 'The Munsters' was a good idea and worth a lot of money.

Well, we may not be able to see how 'The Munsters' get reborn as 'Mockingbird Lane' on a weekly basis, but at least we'll get to see what Bryan Fuller came up with for the pilot. Having already sunk over $10 million into the project, NBC seems to have made the official decision not to move forward with Fuller's 'Mockingbird Lane,' instead airing the pilot as a spooky Halloween special. When will the episode air, and will that be curtains for the project?

While the initial prospect seemed somewhat daunting, and perhaps even too fantastic to be taken seriously, we have to admit that we were curious to see what Bryan Fuller and Bryan Singer would make of 'The Munsters' by adapting it for NBC as 'Mockingbird Lane.'  A little while ago we heard that the project was most likely dead in the water, but given the money NBC has already sunk in, is there any chance we'll see 'Mockingbird Lane' on the small screen after all?

'Pushing Daisies' creator Bryan Fuller might have needed a bit of comfort this week, after rumors flew that NBC was dropping his oft-questioned, but wholly intriguing 'Munsters' reboot 'Mockingbird Lane.'  And how better to comfort the man then by diving into new work and hanging out with friends?  That's why the latest addition to Fuller's forthcoming NBC adapation of 'Hannibal' might look familiar to fans of 'Pushing Daisies,' but who exactly will Ellen Greene be playing?

Well, this is an odd play for NBC. Whenever a famed showrunner takes upon a new project, it's fairly commonplace for said producer to recruit actors from his former series, be they lead or supporting. NBC might be entering whole new territory, however, as 'Hannibal' showrunner Bryan Fuller seems not only to have recruited former 'Wonderfalls' star Chelan Simmons for his new series, but her character as well! What the what?

Boy, that Bryan Fuller is going to have a lot on his plate in the coming year.  Not only is the former 'Pushing Daisies' and 'Wonderfalls' show-runner about to tackle The Munsters with upcoming reboot 'Mockingbird Lane,' but Fuller will re-energize himself with some fava beans and a nice chianti, taking 'Hannibal' to series in mid-season.  Now we're learning Syfy wants a piece of Fuller, and is over the moon about 'High Moon.'
