What a great day, today is. It’s nearly an ICE CUBE-style “Good Day,” and it’s only been made better by the news that THE MUPPETS are coming to ABC. Tuesdays at 8/7c this Fall, THE MUPPETS is the dramatic reinvention that longtime Muppets fans like myself have been waiting for – a 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. The first trailer just hit, and it’s well-worth your time, check it out!
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.
You know how long I’ve been down with Kermit and the gang? Nearly four decades (see left)!
More on ABC’s THE MUPPETS very soon. Stay tuned…
