ABC Signature and The Muppets Studio are currently creating a brand new Muppets series for Disney+ called “The Muppets Mayhem”, which 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 announced that there will be a special panel for the upcoming show at the New York Comic-Con. It will be taking place on October 9th at 11AM ET on the main stage!
Panelists include Lilly Singh, Tahj Mowry, Saara Chaudry, Anders Holm, Adam F. Goldberg, Jeff Yorkes & Bill Barretta. During the panel, the cast/creatives will share news, exclusive footage & more!
“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.
No release date has yet been announced for the show, but with appearances at both the D23 Expo and New York Comic-Con, hopefully, it won’t be too long until we know when it’ll arrive on Disney+.
