“Late Night Liars” will center on celebrity puppets
These aren’t your typical Muppets.
A new series called "Late Night Liars" will feature Henson puppets in a late-night comedy game show, Game Show Network announced on Tuesday.
The modern-day Kermits and Gonzos look to be operating on the "It must be 5 o’clock somewhere" principle, as the network says the show will be set in a "glamorous, cocktail-soaked world." GSN also cautioned that the show is decidedly adult.
The show premieres Thursday, June 10, and centers on a handful of celebrity puppets named Shelley Oceans, William A. Mummy, Cashmere Ramada and Sir Sebastian Simian.
Actor-comedian Larry Miller (“10 Things I Hate About You,” “Best In Show”) will be the human host.
Henson Alternative, a label of the Jim Henson Company, designed the furry creatures.
