A new show on Muppet is coming, and this show will have some hip stars. Disney has requested for the original new series tagged The Muppets Mayhem, according to Variety. The series is behind The Electric Mayhem, a colorful rock band.
Both the Electric Mayhem and the Muppets have a long history together. They first came to light in the initial launch of The Muppet Show, back then it was called The Muppet Show: S^x and Violence.
The group can be taken as the house band for the theater where the Muppet show takes place. The members of the band are Floyd Pepper on vocals and bass, Zoot on the saxophone, Dr. Teeth on vocals and keyboard, Lips on trumpet, Janice on vocals and lead guitar, and Animal on Drums. The band would appear in the various Muppet specials and movies.
While the band has been chilling in the back just so Kermit and the gang can enjoy the spotlight, The Muppets Mayhem will put them in the center of the front row.
The band will be followed in the show as they make an attempt to record their very first album. The band will be teamed up by Lilly Singh, who will be the band’s manager and will play Nora, an A&R executive, and a human janitor.
The developers of The Muppets Mayhem are Bill Barretta (The Muppets, The Muppets Haunted Mansion), Jeff Yorkes, and Adam F. Goldberg (The Goldbergs).
Goldberg and Barretta have credited the executive producer’s title while Yorkes is the Co-executive producer.
David Lightbody, Michael Bostick, and Kris Eber are also credited as executive producers. The production of the series will be handled by ABC Signature and The Muppets Studio.
