"Corpse Bride" director Tim Burton is set to direct the live-action TV series "The Addams Family."
Tim Burton is in talks to serve as an executive producer, as well as possibly directing all of the episodes, reported by Deadline.
Smallville duo Alfred Gough and Miles Millar will be head writers and showrunners.
The plot of the series will reportedly follow Wednesday Addams dealing with the world in 2020.
This marks Burton's first foray into live-action TV work, but he previously shepherded an animated series based around the characters of his 1988 fantasy-comedy Beetlejuice.
MGM has the rights to the property and has been financing the development, which is now the subject of a bidding war, with Netflix as the current frontrunner.
This project comes in the wake of MGM's animated take on The Addams Family, which was released into cinemas last year and has a sequel on the way in 2021.
