The Muppets May Return on TV
THR reports that The Muppets will attempt a big come-back on American television soon, in a new TV show for ABC. Bill Prady (The Big Bang Theory) is co-writing the pilot with Bob Kushell (Anger Management).
The episode should feature Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo, Animal and more of their Muppets friends. Two celebrity cameos are also expected.
As noted by The Hollywood Reporter, this isn't the first time Prady will be writing for the beloved Jim Henson characters: among other Muppets related projects, he previously worked on The Jim Henson Hour and The Muppets Celebrate Jim Henson.
He also tried to revive The Muppets in 2007 - at the time, the pilot didn't spawn a full series; hopefully Bill Prady will be more lucky on his second try.
ABC Studios and The Muppet Studios will produce.
Are you excited for a potential Muppets reboot?
