The Muppets are coming, and I’m pretty sure they made enough promos to have a complete episode. Maybe… that is the 1st episode, just given in 30-50 second increments. No, that would be way too meta. Anyway, if these promos are any indication of what the show will be like, I’m sold. My favorites are the ones with Nathan Fillion (Castle), trying to get with Miss Piggy. Some of the other ABC stars in these commercials are Clark Gregg (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Guillermo Diaz (who is fantastic) and Katie Lowes (Scandal), and Wendi McLendon-Covey (The Goldbergs).
So… check out the “About the Show” and keep on enjoying the really tiny clips below.
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).
ABC has released some teaser videos, from their upcoming show, The Muppets, a reality type show that follows the Muppets in their personal lives. The 30-second teasers have ABC actors interacting with our favorite puppets. They are so good, it’s making me really look forward to this – a show I will like and one that I can watch with my kids.
Watch the adorably funny videos, and the tweet from Patricia Heaton below.
I miss The Muppets. That variety show styled hit was one of the highlights of my childhood. And with the resurgence of all things Muppets, thanks in no small part to Jason Segel, we get The Muppets back on TV. This time, the format is reality TV, as we get a glimpse into their personal lives.
The Alphabet Network shocked viewers with unexpected renewals and exciting series orders this past week. The future of ABC will rely on synergistic efforts, Shondaland programming, some traditional fare, and a great handful of risky offerings.
Count on the Muppets, diverse comedies, Marvel, experimental dramas, and Shonda Rhimes-infused dramas for what is sure to be a stellar 2015-2016 primetime schedule.
