Another top brand from Disney’s portfolio may be getting a series treatment on ABC. The network has ordered a presentation for a comedy pilot featuring the Muppets. The presentation is being written by veteran comedy showrunners Bill Prady, co-creator of blockbuster The Big Bang Theory, and Bob Kushell (Anger Management). Details about the premise are being kept under wraps, but I hear the show would be set behind the scenes of a late-night talk show, with most signature Muppets, led by Kermit the Frog, on tap. Prady and Kushell executive produce, with Kushell serving as showrunner as Prady has his gig on Big Bang. Disney-owned The Muppet Studios (Disney bought rights to the Muppets characters in 2004) is co-producing with ABC Studios.

I'm not crazy about the talent attached to write this, but I'll always check out anything Muppet-related. Let's hope this works!

Well at least prior to being involved with Chuck Lorre, Bill Prady worked with and for Henson for years in the 80's and early 90's ending around the time of Muppet*Vision 3D.

I'm glad they're thinking of bringing the Muppets back to TV, at least.

IT"S OFFICIAL!!!!:

Take note; "a more adult Muppet show, for kids of all ages". This makes me feel better. :)

Perhaps this show will also give Disney more motivation to release (and clear rights double time) to the remaining seasons of The Muppet Show (not to mention a 40th AE of the first season). ;)

So excited for this!

I feel like it'll be aired as winter filler like Galavant was, but that's probably the best spot for it anyway.

It sounds like a 'Modern Family' version of the Muppets. Could be funny?
