The Muppets’ house band Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem are the subject of an upcoming TV show commissioned by Disney Plus.
Variety revealed that the series will follow Teeth, Janice, Zoot, Lips, Floyd Pepper and – of course – Animal as they record their debut album, with Lilly Singh playing the lead human role as their manager Nora. Based on the characters created by Jim Henson, The Muppets Mayhem was developed by The Goldbergs creator Adam F. Goldberg, Muppets alum Bill Barretta and Jeff Yorkes. “We are thrilled to have Adam, Bill and Jeff at the helm to bring all of these iconic and great new characters to life in fresh and dynamic ways,” Disney TV president Ayo Davis said
Broadcast details will be made available in due course. Co-executive producer David Lightbody of the Muppets Studio commented that the Electric Mayhem Band had been “entertaining audiences since the Muppet Show, which debuted 45 years ago, so it’s wonderful that these characters are finally getting to play lead rather than supporting roles.”
