Watch The 10-Minute ABC ‘Muppets’ Presentation That Earned a Series Order
ABC’s upcoming Muppets mockumentary series only had so much to show at its recent Comic-Con 2015 panel, but with an actual premiere as far away as September, Kermit, Ms. Piggy, Gonzo and the gang dug deep for a special preview. Check out the 10-minute presentation that convinced ABC to make a new Muppets series!
Following its debut in San Diego, ABC have given into “overwhelming demand” to release the ten-minute preview, which features Kermit announcing the prospect of a new series to the gang, and subsequently re-recruiting Ms. Piggy for the effort.
So reads ABC’s official description for The Muppets, airing Tuesdays this fall after a September 22 premiere:
THE MUPPETS – The Muppets return to primetime with a 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, wants 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” is produced by ABC Studios and The Muppets Studio.
