The Muppet Show Reboot in the Works from Big Bang Theory Creator
A pilot presentation will reportedly be shown later this month
The current wave of nostalgic reboots shows no signs of stopping.
The latest beloved series fans could get the chance to revisit? The Muppet Show, which has a remake in the works at ABC, PEOPLE can confirm.
As first reported by TVLine, The Big Bang Theory‘s executive producer Bill Prady will co-write and executive produce the project, tentatively titled Muppets 2015, and a pilot presentation will take place next month.
The project is in good hands – not only did Prady co-create one of the most successful shows on television, he’s no stranger to the Muppets, either; he worked as a writer on The Jim Henson Hour in 1989 and on The Muppets Celebrate Jim Henson in 1990, as well as several other Muppet-related projects.
Not much is known about the finer details of the reboot, but a log line obtained by TVLine reads: “The Muppets excitedly gather at ABC for a meeting about the new Muppet Show. However, the show will not move forward unless Miss Piggy signs on.”
