Tim Burton have announced that he started developing a new tv series – “The Addams Family” which will be the first major live-action TV series since 90s. Tim is an American filmmaker, animator, and artist. He is best known for his gothic fantasy and horror films.
The “Smallville” executive producers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar will be head writers on the show and executive producers along with Burton. The TV series will focus on how the Addams Family will live in modern days and on Wednesday Addams’s life.
The Addams Family idea began back in 1938 as a comic book by Charles Adams, which created it as parody of the classic American family. The family stands against the vision of how American family supposed to be – the family lives in a scary gothic mansion, which gave them shelter from people that rejected them and categories them as “not normal”. “Addams Family” was out on 1964.
On the 90s, the family came back to the screens, but this time to the big screens thanks to Barry Sonnenfeld’s (Director of “Man In Black”) films and the actors Anjelica Huston, Christopher Lloyd and Christina Ricci. Addams Family even got an animated movie version for kids at 2019 with the family members got dubbed by Oscar Isaac (“Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker”), Charlize Theron (“Mad Max: Fury Road”), Chloë Grace Moretz (“KickAss”) and Finn Wolfhard (“Stranger Things”).
The new series from MGM haven’t been purchased yet, but Burton started negation with some media service provider and production companies (such as Netflix) to get things moving.
