Disney acquired The Muppets Studio in 2004 and most recently attempted to revive Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and company on the small screen with a critically panned ABC comedy that was canceled after one season in 2016. A search for a writer for the new take is underway.
Also poised to be part of the TV slate, according to Iger, are reboots of star-maker High School Musical and a series based on Pixar’s Monsters, Inc. A TV version of The Mighty Ducks, from the trilogy’s original screenwriter, is also considered likely to land on the platform, sources say.
