Fans of The Muppets at San Diego Comic-Con got a first look at the pitch that won a full-time series for the show. Now you can watch it too:
Yep. The Muppets are back in all their glory. You can see why the Disney studio executives who screened this reportedly gave it a standing ovation.
The Muppets return to primetime with this contemporary, documentary-style show. For the first time ever, a series will explore the Muppets’ personal lives and relationships, both at home and at work, as well as romances, breakups, achievements, disappointments, and desires. This is 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 (“Wilfred”), Bill Barretta, Debbie McClellan and Kyle Laughlin are also executive producers.
The Muppets premiers September 22nd on ABC.
