Earlier this year, Disney announced ABC Signature & The Muppets Studios are creating a brand new series featuring the “Muppets” for Disney+, called “The Muppets Mayhem”, starring Lilly Singh.
The comedy series follows The Electric Mayhem Band — Dr. Teeth on vocals and keyboards, Animal on drums, Floyd Pepper on vocals and bass, Janice on vocals and lead guitar, Zoot on saxophone and Lips on trumpet — on an epic, music-filled journey to record their first-ever studio album. With the help of a driven young music executive, Nora Gibbs (Singh), the old-school Muppet band comes face to face with the current day music scene as they try to finally go platinum.
Disney has released a brand new image from the series on social media, saying “Feeling fine and sandy”
Also starring in the series are Saara Chaudry, Anders Holm and Tahj Mowry.
“The Muppets Mayhem” is developed by Adam F. Goldberg, Bill Barretta and Jeff Yorkes, based on characters created by Jim Henson. It is written by Adam F. Goldberg (“The Goldbergs”), Bill Barretta (“The Muppets,” “Muppets Haunted Mansion”) and Jeff Yorkes, the executive producers are Goldberg, Barretta, Michael Bostick and Kris Eber. Yorkes is a co-executive producer. The Muppets Studio’s David Lightbody and Leigh Slaughter are also executive producers.
We don’t yet know when “The Muppets Mayhem” will arrive on Disney+, but hopefully, it won’t be too long until we get some new Muppets content on the steaming service.
