I wonder if this is really true or a joke. I am suspicious of this. The page says that it is from The Jim Henson Company, and not Disney (though Henson could still be involved). Also, it says that it will be on TBS. I would think that Disney would want it on one of it's own channels, rather than a rival cable network (owned by a rival company, Warner brothers).

Your link is dead.

If it's for real, The Muppets are owned 100% by Disney.

I think it's bogus info.

It says all new characters so this is not a Disney Muppet project but a New Jim Henson Project.

But check the second link (if it's working. If not, try hitting "refresh") It says that's it's Jim Henson Company, with new Muppet characters. Meaning, not the "Classic Muppets," but new characters entirely, that are not owned by Disney.
Edit: Yeah, what muppetperson said. (I've been ziffled.)

Even if it is true, I'm not impressed. I shot a pilot for a late-nighe talk show Dick Clark developed for a puppet character I did over 10 years ago. And ALF was successful with the same idea more recently. There have even been local puppet-hosted talk shows around for years.

Can't Henson EVER do anything original anymore?
