NBC Nabs Jim Henson Puppet Comedy
UPDATED: The network has ordered a script for a single-camera comedy project about a Palm Springs family and its puppet neighbors.
As The Muppets prepares to hit theaters, NBC is readying some puppet fare of its own.
The network is developing The New Nabors, a single-camera comedy project that centers on a family that lives in Palm Springs and is aghast with their new neighbors -- a gang of puppets.
The project, which hails from Jim Henson Studios in association with Universal Television, will be written by 30 Rock executive proudcer John Riggi and John Hoffman, who will also executive produce alongside Henson Company CEO and Jim Henson's daughter Lisa Henson.
