Tim Burton is wading into television for his first major live action series of The Addams Family. Burton is negotiating to executive produce and possibly direct all the episodes of the series. Smallville developers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar will serve as showrunners and head writers, in addition to executive producing.
MGM TV, which has the rights to the IP, financed development of the project. No network is attached, but Netflix is rumored to be at the top of the list.
The Addams Family was created by cartoonist Charles Addams and follows the bizarre and macabre family. There have been four television adaptions and four movies with another to be released in 2021.
