According to Executive Producer and Co-Creator Bill Prady, this fall’s The Muppets will be mash-up of The MuppetsThe Office, and The Larry Sanders Show.

The set-up is a show-within-a-show. Miss Piggy will be hosting the late-night show “Up Late with Miss Piggy.” The talk-show is great set-up for all the well-known celebrity guests The Muppets has always been famous for.

Here is a list of what all the other Muppets will be doing:

-Kermit will be the show’s Executive Producer.
-Gonzo is the Head Writer.
-Rizzo and Pepe are in the writer’s room.
-Scooter is the Talent Coordinator.
-Fozzie is Miss Piggy’s on-air sidekick.
-Sam Eagle is the head of Broadcast Services.
-The Swedish Chef is well… Craft Services.

Much of the show will be off-stage interviews with the characters and focus on their personal lives.

I am so excited for this show. It looks absolutely hilarious. I was a huge fan of the 90’s version of The Muppets and have seen most of the original series, as well. With the update format, I am sure this will be a hit.

The Muppets premieres on ABC on September 22nd.
