The Muppets Reboot
ABC has given The Muppets a full-series order. The show is co-written by Big Bang Theory co-creator Bill Prady and Bob Kushell. Randall Einhorn and Bill Barretta are executive producing.
“The show’s going to be all about our personal lives, behind the scenes, our relationships, sort of an adult muppet show,” says Kermit in the first trailer.
The Muppets will be shot in “crazy, hand-held, documentary-style and have cut-aways to one-on-one interviews” – not dissimilar from The Office.
In addition to The Muppets, ABC has ordered comedies Dr. Ken, starring Ken Jeong, and The Real O’Neals. As for dramas, Shonda Rhimes’ latest show The Catch, Oil, Of Kings and Prophets, Quantico, Wicked City and The Family were all picked up.
The Muppets will air Tuesday nights on ABC at 8/7c starting this fall.
