ABC Released ‘The Muppets’ Mini Pilot Online (VIDEO)

Can’t contain yourself until the fall season to watch ABC‘s upcoming Muppets series?

Well you’re in luck, because the network has released the 10-minute pilot online for your viewing pleasure. The footage originally aired at San Diego Comic-Con and received a standing ovation.

In the meta pilot (filmed as a documentary about the Muppets trying to get their own ABC series), Kermit tells the gang that they’ve been offered their own show on ABC.

It’s kind of like The Office but with more puppets.

According to a synopsis for the series, the show is “a contemporary, documentary-style show that, for the first time ever, will explore the Muppets’ personal lives and relationships, both at home and at work, as well as romances, break-ups, achievements, disappointments, wants and desires; a more adult Muppet show, for kids of all ages.”

The Muppets premieres on Tuesday, September 22 at 8 PM on ABC. Will you be watching?
