Until now, Bill Prady has arguably been best known as the co-creator (with Chuck Lorre) of THE BIG BANG THEORY. Now, however, he is dealing with a whole different batch of eccentric types as the executive producer/show runner/co-creator (with Bob Kushell) of ABC’s THE MUPPETS, which premieres Tuesday, September 22, at 8 PM. Within its own version of the Hollywood universe, THE MUPPETS goes behind the scenes with Kermit, Miss Piggy and the gang as Miss Piggy launches her new talk show, “Up Late With Miss Piggy,” produced by Kermit.

Animation has been a particularly well-suited realm for Christophe Beck to practice his melodically energetic way of giving an orchestra the frisky, bright vibes of pop music, a Pharrell-ish feeling of optimism as well as playfully ominous danger that’s recently helped to propel The Mouse House’s short PAPERMAN to an Oscar win before assisting in FROZEN‘s feature-length CGI-toon gold – a movie that’s made Beckthe box office champ of cartoon scoring as well.

Now that recipe is likely do the same for this sweet […]Read On »
