The series will be Burton’s first real foray into a major live action television show. He is currently working out the details to direct all episodes of the series. Naturally, he will also serve as executive producer. Alfred Gough and Miles Millar of Smallville fame will be the showrunners, head writers and executive producers.
While there is no network attached to the project, rumor has it Netflix is the front runner. If the show lands at Netflix, there is more opportunity for edgier content. This is certainly right up Burton’s alley.
The plot of the series is not set in stone, but it will likely be set during present times. The audience will see the world from Wednesday Addams perspective. The Addams Family has taken on many iterations since Charles Addams‘ original 1938 cartoon. The most recent being an animated movie from 2019, which will have a sequel.
