The Addams step out of Charles Addams’ cartoons. They live with all of the trappings of the macabre (including a detached hand for a servant) and are quite wealthy. Added to this mix is a crooked accountant and his loan shark and a plot to slip in the shark’s son into the family as their long lost Uncle Fester. Can the false Fester find his way into the vault before he is discovered? —IMDb
A former director of photographer who made the successful transition into directing features, Barry Sonnenfeld was responsible for some of the biggest hits in the 1990s, including the international sci-fi hit, “Men in Black” (1997). He previously cut his teeth as a cinematographer for Joel and Ethan Coen, shooting some of their earliest films – from “Blood Simple” (1984) through “Miller’s Crossing” (1990) – before making his own directorial debut with “The Addams Family” (1991). While he found limited success following “Men in Black” – mainly with its 2002 sequel – Sonnenfeld moved away from feature directing to start a third career as a successful television producer. Though he initially hit a few snags with several short-lived series like “Karen Sisco” (USA, 2003) and “Notes From the Underbelly” (WB, 2007-08), he found his stride with “Pushing Daisies” (ABC, 2007- ), a critically-lauded fantasy drama that earned Sonnenfeld high praise and his first ever Emmy Award.
