Munsters reboot Mockingbird Lane won't be picked up for a full series, it's been confirmed.

X-Men director Bryan Singer reportedly spent 10 million dollars on a pilot of the show, which starred Eddie Izzard and Jerry O'Connell and aired in the US in October.

But creator Bryan Fuller confirmed on Twitter that NBC won't be developing any more episodes.

He said: "I tweet with a heavy heart. NBC not moving forward with #MockingbirdLane. From producers and cast, thank you all for enthusiasm and support."

The show, a re-imagining of the 1960s hit sitcom, starred Eddie as Grandpa and Jerry as Herman Munster, while Portia de Rossi played Lily Munster and British actress Charity Wakefield was Lily's human niece Marilyn.

The reboot's title came from the address the original Munsters lived at - number 1313 Mockingbird Lane.
