ABC is having a blast with The Muppets, and it hasn’t even aired yet. The premise, a faux documentary show, goes behind the scenes and follows the Muppets around in their personal lives. To go along with this, ABC has filmed TV spots starring other ABC stars, but also did it from a behind the scenes perspective. The spots include Scott Foley and Kerry Washington (Scandal), Eden Sher (The Middle), Ken Jeong (Dr. Ken – coming soon), Wendi McLendon-Covey (The Goldbergs), Clark Gregg (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Tracee Ellis Ross and Anthony Anderson (Black-ish), and Randall Park and Constance Wu (Fresh Off the Boat).
Watch all of the ads below. So fun!
As you can probably tell, it is a show that does not take itself seriously at all because, well… the characters are these famous puppets. It’s going to be really nice watching this with my kids every week.
The Muppets premieres Tuesday, September 22nd, on ABC.
