We're SO glad that Jim Henson Studios is having this resurgence!
With all the well-earned hype surrounding the upcoming Muppets movie, we're NOT surprised that TV networks are starting to jump on the bandwagon!
That's right, folks! It's not another Muppet Show, but we've just learned that NBC has ordered a single-camera comedy called The New Neighbors, which "centers on a family that lives in Palm Springs and is aghast with their new neighbors — a gang of puppets." Ha!
Sure, there have been plenty of failed shows that featured puppets in the past, but this one is coming straight from Jim Henson Studios AND Jim's daughter Lisa Henson is involved…so we're thinking we can go into this one optimistically!
Maybe next the Food Network will bring on The Swedish Chef for his own cooking show! We would SO watch that…as long as there's subtitles that is! LOLz!
Are U excited for a new puppet show from Jim Henson Studios???
