It’s alive?! No, not yet. It’s just a script deal. But it’s interesting that House executive producers Russel Friend and Garrett Lerner are developing the classic horror tale Frankenstein for NBC.

No other details are available at this point other than this will be a modern-day take on the story. But Frankenstein is one of those concepts where the closer you stick to the original tale, the tougher it becomes to imagine as a TV show — you’d have to radically change things to have a concept that could run five seasons. (Hmm: After a strong, silent-type cop is gunned down, a brainy scientist reanimates him from the dead and together they solve crimes in modern-day New York City — there).
