Probably due to the success of The Muppets movie, The Jim Henson Company has teamed up with the BBC to bring Henson puppets back to television with ‘No Strings Attached’, in what sounds like a kind of game show with Muppets and weekly guest celebrities.
From the BBC:
Danny Cohen, Controller BBC One and Karl Warner, Executive Editor Entertainment Commissioning, have commissioned BBC In-house Entertainment to make a pilot for BBC One. The project is a co-production with The Jim Henson Company.
In No Strings Attached (working title), a brand new cast of puppet characters will invite two celebrity guests to enter their world. The guests will go head to head in a series of unique games run by the cast of characters and take part in a variety of sketches, in what will be a warm, cheeky, family affair fuelled by a healthy dose of off-the-wall, madcap fun.
Danny Cohen said: “It’s wonderful to be working with The Jim Henson Company and a writing team led by Danny Baker.”
Derek McLean, Creative Director, BBC In-House Entertainment, said: “We are delighted and honoured to be providing both desk-space and an original idea to such a powerful array of showbiz talent, in what promises to be the longest credit roller in history.”
The creative team behind the show includes Brian Henson as lead puppeteer and Danny Baker as lead writer. The puppets have been created by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop in Los Angeles.
Executive producers are Derek McLean and Andrew Westwell for BBC Entertainment, Brian and Lisa Henson for The Jim Henson Company and Martin Baker and Peter Coogan for Baker Coogan Productions, long time Henson collaborators.
