The Muppets will star in an all-new original television special coming to Disney Channel later this month. The Muppets have teamed up with popular Disney Channel stars - including Miley Cyrus, Ashley Tisdale, Dylan & Cole Sprouse, and Jonas Brothers - in the all-new television special "Studio DC: Almost Live!". The show is currently set to air on the Disney Channel on Saturday, July 19, 2008 at 8:00PM ET/PT (check local listings for details).
The special will feature singing and dancing, comedy sketches and the backstage antics of a fictional Disney Channel variety show.
The project was developed to order to introduce a new generation of fans to the Muppets – while keeping the classic feeling and tone that the Muppets are known for. This Muppet and Disney Channel project was first announced last year; and interestingly enough, many segments for the "almost live" show were filmed almost a year ago (with principle photography for those segments wrapping in early August 2007).
So mark your calendars, and prepare for an all-new Muppet variety show for an all-new generation of fans! I will be sure to keep you updated with more information on the premiere of this long-awaited television event as details become available.
