ABC just announced that the Muppets will be returning to prime time in a new series that unlike anything we’ve seen before.
Since their rejuvenation in the movie Muppets, people have found a new appreciation for the comically wise frog and his comedic troupe. This show will differ from their variety/sketch series in the late 70s by playing off the documentary style of storytelling.
Read ABC’s official statement:
“The Muppets” return to prime time with a contemporary, documentary-style show that, for the first time ever, will explore the Muppets’ personal lives and relationships, both at home and at work, as well as romances, break-ups, achievements, disappointments, wants and desires; a more adult Muppet show, for kids of all ages.
Bill Prady (“The Big Bang Theory”) and Bob Kushell (“Anger Management”) are co-writers and executive producers. Randall Einhorn and Bill Barretta are also executive producers. “The Muppets” is produced by ABC Studios and The Muppets Studio.
Ladies and gentlemen, let’s start the show!
