First trailer for ABC’s The Muppets!

The Muppets

Yes, once again it’s time to play the music, it’s time to light the lights, it’s time to meet the Muppets on The Muppet Show…again!

It was announced a month back that The Muppets would once again be hitting our TV! This news is coming from ABC, who are going to be producing a prime-time version of The Muppets coming this autumn.

It looks to have each and every Muppet we all know and love to some degree (including hopefully Rizzo the Rat – one of this writer’s favourites) and judging from the trailer it’s got that slight older-audience edge which shall make for some interesting viewing.

The show looks to ape the popular hand-held mockumentary style of TV like The Office and Parks and Recreation and it’s a definite marriage of old and new Muppet humour.

Brainchild of Bill Prady and Bob Kushell, The Muppets certainly has some weight behind it creatively. Prady being co-creator of The Big Bang Theory as well as working on previous Muppets projects, and Kushell being a producer and writer on shows such as Anger Management and Suburgatory.

But what you’re really looking for is proof of concept. And don’t worry, MCM Buzz have you covered. Here’s the first trailer!
