Earlier this year, Disney announced it was creating a brand new Muppets series for Disney+ called, “Muppet Mayhem”, which has been filming over the past few weeks.
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.
This new series will star Lilly Singh (“A Little Late with Lilly Singh,” “Dollface”), Tahj Mowry (“Smart Guy,” “Baby Daddy”), Saara Chaudry (“The Mysterious Benedict Society,” “Holly Hobbie”) and Anders Holm (“Workaholics,” “Inventing Anna”).
According to Deadline, there was an accident on the set of “Muppets Mayhem” on Friday night, when a crew truck crashed into a tree on the edge of a cliff near Griffith Observatory. No one was injured in the accident, which happened around 11:30 PM.
“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.
The Disney Branded Television series is produced by ABC Signature and The Muppets Studio for Disney+.
