Tim Burton’s Planned Addams Family TV Show Sounds All Together Ooky

Tim Burton Developing Live-Action The Addams Family Series

Audiences today are probably most familiar with the trilogy of films distributed first by Paramount and then by Warner Bros. beginning with 1991's The Addams Family and concluding in 1998 with The Addams Family Reunion. Gough and Millar will be the showrunners and also the head writers for the new Addams Family. Based on cartoons by Charles Addams, the original live-action comedy series ran on ABC from 1964 to 1966.

This would mark Burton's (Batman, Sleepy Hollow, Beetlejuice) first foray into live-action television, and he's said to be in negotiations to executive produce and possibly direct all episodes of this new show.

Netflix is reportedly "at the top of the list of landing the project". According to Deadline, MGM TV is shopping an updated Addams Family series to streaming services and cable networks. Assuming all goes well, Gough and Millar will serve as head writers and showrunners of the series, which is being financed by MGM TV and is now seeking a home.


Yes, of course, there are doubts to be had. However, his last few films, which include Dumbo and Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, haven't quite been up to the director's highest highs, and in the ever changing world of entertainment, a chance to make a long form story with a family IP seems like a good move.

We will have more information on this project as it becomes available, but for now, Burton and the Addamses feels like a match made in. well, certainly not heaven, but somewhere. However, the story has had various screen adaptations over the years including two other live-action television series. I think sometimes we forget in all the spirals and skeletons just how amusing Tim Burton's work can be and what sort of great things he can do when he's just given a great cast and a world to play in. Oh, and for Uncle Fester, I'd pick one of my favorite character actors: Dominic Burgress.
