If you’ve ever wondered what a TV pilot pitch meeting run by the Muppets would look like, now’s your chance to find out.
ABC teased its upcoming primetime reality series featuring Jim Henson’s iconic puppets in a very unique first look on Tuesday.
In the 10-minute video, Kermit the Frog introduces the idea of a reality show about them to the other Muppets, so Floyd suggests to do it in a crazy “documentary style video and cut to interviews,” which Gonzo secretly thinks is a bad idea.
Elizabeth Banks and Topher Grace make cameos in the teaser, and Kermit promises more celebrities will be featured every week.
However, the gang’s biggest problem is diva Miss Piggy, who’s not on board to do the show so they have to make it their mission to convince her.
Piggy (who is making a period film when she’s not busy shopping at Trader Joe’s) and Kermit have ended their relationship but the video hints that their romance might just be rekindled … if she can keep her trotters off Topher at least.
Meanwhile Fozzie has a new girlfriend — and takes Uber!
The network is pegging the series to look like a reality show complete with cutaways to individual interviews. It will follow the Muppets’ personal lives, including more obscure characters and plenty of pop culture references from Katy Perry and taking selfies to getting stuck in traffic on the 405.
“The Muppets” premieres Sept. 22 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
