The Electric Mayhem Band, the iconic house band from The Muppet Show, is finally getting their own series.
The aptly titled The Muppets Mayhem will stream on Disney+ and will also star Lilly Singh as Nora, a junior A&R executive who may have drawn the short straw in looking after this notoriously wild crew.
Disney+ laid out the plot of the series in a press release saying, “After 45 years of rockin’ out, The Electric Mayhem goes on an epic musical journey to finally record their first studio album. With the help of a driven young music executive, Nora, the old-school Muppet band comes face to face with the current day music scene as they try to finally go platinum.”
As far as the creative forces behind the series, Disney+ noted, “The series was developed by Adam F. Goldberg, Bill Barretta and Jeff Yorkes based on characters created by Jim Henson. It is written by Adam F. Goldberg (‘The Goldbergs’), Bill Barretta (‘The Muppets,’ ‘Muppets Haunted Mansion’) and Jeff Yorkes, the executive producers are Goldberg, Barretta, Michael Bostick and Kris Eber. Yorkes is a co-executive producer. The Muppets Studio’s David Lightbody and Leigh Slaughter are also executive producers.”
A release date for The Muppets Mayhem has yet to be announced.
