NBC Developing New Modern-Day Frankenstein TV Series

NBC is reportedly developing a new TV series based on the legend of Frankenstein. It will be a modern-day take on the classic Universal/Mary Shelly monster.

The executive producers for “House MD,” Russel Friend and Garrett Lerner will pen the script.

OK, I know Frankenstein (Who, for the millionth time, isn’t named Frankenstein at all. That’s the name of his creator.) is horror icon and all, but how many of these “inspired re-imaginings” must we endure before someone has an original idea again? Do we really need this…as well as the SIX different Frankenstein productions currently in development (at 20th Century Fox, Summit, Universal and Lakeshore Entertainment to name a few) right now?
