“We’re thrilled to bring The Electric Mayhem Band’s story to the center of this new series,” said David Lightbody, series executive producer and vice president of Disney Live Entertainment and Muppets Studios. “They’ve been entertaining audiences since puppet show, who debuted 45 years ago, so it’s wonderful that these characters can finally play lead roles rather than supporting roles.
