Veteran TV creator Bryan Fuller took the time to talk about his upcoming small screen projects -- "Mockingbird Lane" and "Hannibal" -- with some of his loyal fans at Comic-Con on Saturday.
Butch Patrick, who played Eddie on the original "Munsters" series that "Mockingbird Lane" is based on, hosted the panel, fittingly wearing an Eddie Munster t-shirt.
First, a four-minute first look at "Mockingbird Lane" rolled and audiences members were happy with what they saw.
Fuller told the crowd that he hopes "Mockingbird Lane" looks like "Hitchcock directing a Harry Potter film," according to members of the audience via Twitter. The NBC series has its main characters already cast -- Portia De Rossi is Lily Munster, Jerry O'Connell is Herman, Eddie Izzard is Grandpa, Mason Cook is Eddie and Charity Wakefield is Marilyn -- but Fuller said they could always make room for one more.
Fans of Fuller's "Pushing Daisies" will also be happy to know that members of the production design team and crew from the late ABC dramedy are part of the "Mockingbird Lane" team, according to an audience member via Twitter.
Fuller said that "Mockingbird Lane" will be darker than "Pushing Daisies" and more in line with "Dead Like Me," another one of his earlier shows. Why all the dark undertones? "I went to a lot of funerals as a kid," Fuller joked with the crowd.
But there is good news for those who miss "Pushing Daisies":
As for Fuller's other upcoming project, "Hannibal," which has already received a full 13-episode season order from NBC, the TV creator said they've planned out up to seven seasons. The small screen incarnation of the film classic will star Mads Mikkelsen and will be like "an elegant horror movie on network TV," he added
Fuller would, however, only talk about Seasons 1, 2 and 4.

One of the most delightful shows ever (yes, ever), ABC's "Pushing Daisies" was equal parts quirky and cute, procedural and romantic, with a cast you couldn't help but adore. I'd happily touch this one to bring it back to life and marathon re-runs of the show's two-season, 22-episode library (2007-09) with the Pie Hole gang. - Maggie Furlong
Really though ... who doesn't miss the Seavers? There was something special about Jason, Maggie, Mike, Carol, Ben (and later, Chrissy) that set them apart from other family sitcoms. Plus, "Growing Pains" included Leonardo DiCaprio as a mere teenager. It's about time someone brought this ABC series back in syndication. - Jaimie Etkin
Now that the long-running medical drama has been off the air for a few years, I can totally see myself getting sucked into rerun marathons a la "Law & Order: SVU" on USA Network. Bring "ER" back, stat! - Chris Harnick
When it was airing on Showtime, "Huff" -- a sharp comedy starring Hank Azaria as a shrink with a dysfunctional family -- was one of my favorite shows, but I haven't seen it anywhere since it was prematurely canceled after its second season. Every now and then, I find myself wanting to re-watch the episode where Oliver Platt slept with Huff's mom, played by Blythe Danner. Hilarious. -- Alex Moaba
Only on the air for two seasons, ABC's "Twin Peaks" was the top-rated show on in 1990. With the enticing premise of a dead teenager found in the woods in a very mysterious town, there's a reason this show was addictive ... and would definitely be addictive all over again. - Leigh Weingus
"Wonder Showzen" used all the conventions of children's television -- colorful puppets, silly skits, cartoons, interviews with actual kids -- to create one of the most demented shows to ever grace the small screen. It also employed a who's who of comedy talent: Zach Galifianakis, David Cross, Amy Poehler and Judah Friedlander are among the many actors who graced this twisted MTV2 offering. Why isn't Adult Swim showing re-runs of this at 2 a.m. every night? It's a mystery. - Mo Ryan
A little too young to fully appreciate "Murphy Brown" when it originally aired, I would love to get to know the "FYI" crew in earnest ... if only TV Land or Hallmark would start airing the series because it's not out on DVD. - Chris Harnick
"Felicity," which aired on The WB from 1998-2002, is quite possibly the most comforting show out there. Every time I'm feeling lost and directionless, I watch Felicity (Keri Russell) make a series of cringe-inducing mistakes and instantly feel better. Let's get this show back on the air! - Leigh Weingus
This show is the reason I love TV. People alternately hated to love it and loved to hate it, but after a controversial finale ending their six-season run on ABC in 2010, "Lost" is still one of the most talked about series ever. I own every season on Blu-ray, but would watch it again with commercials from start to finish. - Maggie Furlong
"The Mickey Mouse Club"
The Disney variety show was a mainstay for multiple generations with its '50s, '70s and '90s incarnations. The series that gave Ryan Gosling, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake, Keri Russell and more their start should really be back on the airwaves, if only to see them together again (and hear some '90s slow jams). - Jaimie Etkin
My college friends and I were really into Eddie Izzard and Minnie Driver's FX series about a family of con-artists that assumed a wealthy, dead family's identity. But despite being critically well-received, it only lasted two seasons. I want to re-live the charming gypsy-ness of it all, and "My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding" is not cutting it. - Alex Moaba
Angsty baby-boomers, counter culture, troubled marriages ... what more can you ask for? "Thirtysomething" aired on ABC from 1987-1991, and we could all benefit from a dose of reruns. - Leigh Weingus
Before Ryan Murphy made "Glee," "American Horror Story" or "The New Normal," there was The WB's teen series "Popular." The show told the story of two teenage girls (Carly Pope and Leslie Bibb) on polar opposite sides of the popularity spectrum at their high school, but when their parents randomly met and got married, their worlds collided. Starring current TV stars Sara Rue and Christopher Gorham, I wish we could see their earlier years on this quirky show again. - Jaimie Etkin
"Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman"
I'm ashamed to admit I've never seen this cult favorite soap opera spoof, which aired from 1976-77, but I've heard so many modern TV writers and show creators reference it as inspiration that I'd absolutely watch it (and spinoff "Fernwood Tonight") if it came back on. - Maggie Furlong
The cult NBC spy show has gone to the big Buy More in the sky, but it should live on as reruns someday. Surely in syndication the show could pick up new acolytes and entertain longtime fans who long to experience "Chuck's" adventures (emotional and espionage-related) all over again. Plus, the exposure would be a boost to Jeffster's career! - Mo Ryan
