THE MUPPETS are taking center stage on ABC, and they have an established writer in their corner: THE BIG BANG THEORY co-creator Bill Prady.

Prady — who began his writing career at Jim Henson Productions — co-created the 2015 version of the series with Bob Kushell, and this new version is showcasing these characters in a bit of a new light.

While writing on THE BIG BANG THEORY, Prady and his fellow writers were open about tackling episodes as they came (versus planning out huge arcs), and Prady shared he’s using the same method on THE MUPPETS.

“It’s the same process; we just try to come up with the best story we can,” Prady said. “We write the Muppets as real people, with real relationships, and real lives.”

Case in point? Miss Piggy, who is the host of her own show in this world  — THE MUPPETS follows the backstage shenanigans of the cast/crew of her show, UP LATE WITH MISS PIGGY — discovers that her employees aren’t including her in post-work fun.

Need a dose of joy in your life?

ABC has made the presentation for its new show, THE MUPPETS, available online — a move, ABC claims in its cheeky pre-video roll that it never intended to do.

“It was never meant to be seen by the public,” the intro says. “But following Comic-Con, demand was overwhelming…You got what you wanted. Please stop yelling at us.”

And it’s delightful. Watch a taste of what’s in store for the new version of THE MUPPETS…
