The London Times, via The Internet Movie Database, reports that a new series featuring the Muppet characters is in development for primetime. Early production on the series has already begun in England, where the original Muppet Show was also produced. Names currently lined up to appear in the new show include Jennifer Lopez and Ricky Gervais (the original The Office, Valiant). In the meantime, fans who are finding it difficult to wait for the new series can catch the Muppet gang in The Muppets’ Wonderful Wizard of Oz, which will air on the ABC network, on May 20th.
