The Muppets Extended Preview: The Pitch to ABCby Clarissa / July 22, 2015
The Muppets is returning to primetime with a documentary-style show in the same vein as The Office. This time, the series will explore the Muppets’ personal lives — at home and at work.
After screening the footage at San Diego Comic-Con earlier this month, fans wanted the footage to be released and so ABC finally agreed (and even addressed the popular demand in the opening titles).
In the video below, Kermit and the gang try to convince Piggy to rejoin their ranks and unite for a new TV show, with a guest appearance by Elizabeth Banks and Topher Grace.
The Muppets will premiere on September 22 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
