Last year, it was revealed that a Muppets TV series focusing on The Electric Mayhem Band was officially in the works at Disney+.
The Muppets Mayhem is set to follow the beloved show’s band as they try and record their first ever album, according to Variety.
The show will star Lilly Singh as Nora, a human junior A&R executive who must manage the band, featuring Dr. Teeth, Animals, Floyd Pepper, Janice, Zoot and Lips.
Adam F. Goldberg, creator of The Goldbergs, developed the series alongside Bill Barretta and Jeff Yorkes based on Jim Henson’s characters.
“The Muppets are renowned for quality, creativity and unrivaled, fun storytelling for the whole family,” said Ayo Davis, president of Disney Branded Television.
“We are thrilled to have Adam, Bill and Jeff at the helm to bring all of these iconic and great new characters to life in fresh and dynamic ways.”
A Muppets Halloween special was released on Disney+ in 2021, while short-form series Muppets Now was released in July 2020.
