The Muppets come to ABC later this month. Their new show will utilize a documentary-style setup that many will remember from The Office. The audience will be shown more of the characters’ “real lives” than we’ve gotten to see before. The promotion for this series has been a lot of fun, pulling the characters into the real world to help set up and sell the structure of the show.
Several weeks ago, Kermit and Miss Piggy took to Twitter to publicly announce their breakup. And the commercials have featured various Muppets interacting with other stars of the network, such as Anthony Anderson (Black-ish), Kerry Washington (Scandal) and one of my personal favorite geeks, Nathan Fillion (Castle). It’s the Fillion ads that have especially caught my attention. They’ve gone from funny to slightly scandalous and I LOVE IT! Check out the progression below then hit the comments. Tell me if you’ll be checking out The Muppets premier on Tuesday, September 22.
