EW has shared some first look images from the highly anticipated live-action series, “The Muppets Mayhem” which will be coming to Disney+ this year.
“The Muppets Mayhem” stars Lilly Singh (“A Little Late with Lilly Singh,” “Dollface”), Tahj Mowry (“Smart Guy,” “Baby Daddy”), Saara Chaudry (“The Mysterious Benedict Society,” “Holly Hobbie”) and Anders Holm (“Workaholics,” “Inventing Anna”).
The comedy series follows The Electric Mayhem Band — Dr. Teeth on vocals and keyboards, Animal on drums, Floyd Pepper on vocals and bass, Janice on vocals and lead guitar, Zoot on saxophone and Lips on trumpet — on an epic, music-filled journey to record their first-ever studio album. With the help of a driven young music executive, Nora Gibbs (Singh), the old-school Muppet band comes face to face with the current day music scene as they try to finally go platinum.
