    From The Hollywood Reporter:
    Muppets to get restyled for Fox
    March 07, 2002
    A new generation of Muppets is ready to take on primetime. Jim Henson Television has partnered with producers Team Todd and Fox Broadcasting Co. to develop a Muppet series that will feature a new crop of characters in addition to Kermit, Miss Piggy and other long-standing members of Henson's fuzzy troupe. The project is still in the early stages of development, but the plan is to take a wholly new approach to a Muppet series -- it will not be a remake of the successful "Muppet Show" comedy-variety vehicle that aired in syndication from 1976-81.

    Saw this thread and thought it must be about "Greg the Bunny." [​IMG]

    It will probably flop since there was already another Muppets show in the early ninties that lasted only a few months. I have the pilot of that one and it was pretty good.

    Jeff, the early 90s Muppet Show flopped because it was a pale imitation of the original. This new one, according to the press release, will be different. But if you say so maybe Fox should abandon the project. [​IMG]
