Back in November I reported that the Jim Henson Company was developing a series titled "Tinseltown". The show is about a bull named Samson Knight and a pig named Bobby Vegan, a mismatched gay couple living in Hollywood. Henson has just revealed some more information on the development of this project at this week’s Comic-Con convention in San Diego, along with giving attendees a sneak peak at the series.
"Tinseltown" is currently being developed by the company for the LOGO network. A sample of this adult puppet show was shown at Comic-Con and was a big hit with the audience. Brian Henson did admit one reason he wanted to do a show about a male couple was mainly because he can’t do female voices. The comical, character-driven TV series is sure to garner a lot of attention and attract a lot of fans, and you can be sure that I’ll keep you posted with more information on this project, and other Henson Company dealings, when more information surfaces.
