Fox has ordered LET’S BE REAL, an election-themed puppet special.

The half-hour presentation from Robert Smigel will air Thursday, October 1 at 9/8c, and will “cover politics, pop culture and the 2020 election through topical sketches featuring puppets, celebrity cameos and remote pieces.” This marks the first-ever collaboration between FOX Entertainment’s Scripted and Unscripted departments.

“Robert Smigel is a uniquely gifted creator, and, as the election approaches, we are so excited to be working with him on bringing a new take on the current discourse taking place across the political spectrum,” said Michael Thorn, President of Entertainment, FOX Entertainment, and Rob Wade, the company’s President of Alternative Entertainment and Specials, in a statement. “This project also marks an important partnership for our scripted and unscripted departments, and we hope this is but the first in a long line of collaborations between our two teams.”

Added Smigel: “I am a uniquely gifted creator, and, as the election approaches, they are so excited to be working with me on bringing a new take on the current discourse taking place across the political spectrum. Oh, yeah – for me to poop on.”
