Earth To Ned: New Muppet Show Coming to Disney+
The Jim Henson Company is working with Disney once again on a new muppet show – Earth To Ned. This new series will show exclusively on Disney’s new streaming service (Disney+) in 2020.
“The comedic half-hour series follows Ned, a blue-skinned alien and his lieutenant Cornelius, who were sent to scout Earth for an eventual invasion – but instead became obsessed with our popular culture. Now, they host a talk show, broadcast from the bridge of their spaceship hidden deep underground, where they interview our most precious commodity, celebrities, to talk about Ned’s current pop culture obsessions. Ned will be bringing real-life celebrity guests to his ship from across the known universe and interviewing them, late night talk show style, in hopes of producing the ultimate talk show – making Ned a celebrity and putting him further off mission. And the more Ned learns about our human culture, the more obsessed he becomes.”
“Earth To Ned is what happens when a very traditional television format gets completely turned on its head, resulting in a wholly original talk show starring some of the most complex puppets we have ever created.”
“Our alien host Ned adores and embraces everything about Earthlings – including our quirks, and even our flaws. I think adults will especially appreciate his positive view of our world, which makes our show stand out in today’s often cynical TV landscape.”
Joseph Freed, president of Marwar Junction Productions teased, “Every time someone launches a new talk show they say it’s unlike anything viewers have seen before. That might finally be true.”
The Earth to Ned announcement comes just after Disney+ decided not to move forward with Muppets Live Another Day. Instead, Ned will join an incredible lineup on Disney+ including Lady and the Tramp, The World According to Jeff Goldblum, and more.
