Grown Ups Rejoice. The Muppets Hit Prime Time This Fall.
Grown up prime time television is about to get better.
The kids who grew up watching The Muppets are about to be reunited with their favorite characters – and they’ve “grown up” too. This new show airing on ABC in the fall is geared toward an adult audience, and is already generating quite the buzz.
I personally am looking forward to this fresh take. We’ve run the gamut of cartoons for grown ups – it’s time for a little puppet action! This new format is a modern day documentary-style show. It’s The Muppets meets The Office, and it’s a formula I’m liking very much. Watch the trailer below:
This YouTube commenter hit the nail on the head:
Will Fozzie find true love? Will Piggy and Kermit find their way back to each other? Will the one-on-one interviews with Gonzo humanize him and make us forget he’s an alien?
