Filming has officially begun for a new Muppets series!
The Muppets Mayhem is a forthcoming series starring Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem for Disney+.
The series follows The Electric Mayhem — Dr. Teeth on lead vocals and keyboard, Animal on drums, Janice on lead guitar, Floyd Pepper on bass guitar, Zoot on saxophone, and Lips on trumpet — as they set out to record their first studio album of songs.
Earlier this week, Muppet performer Matt Vogel announced the start of filming on Twitter. Matt is the voice of characters such as Kermit the Frog and Sgt. Floyd Pepper.
The Electric Mayhem features members Dr. Teeth (Barretta), Sgt. Floyd Pepper (Vogel), Janice (David Rudman), Zoot (Dave Goelz), Animal (Eric Jacobson), and Lips (Peter Linz).
The Muppets will be joined by Lilly Singh as Nora, a junior executive for a record label who will oversee the band in their efforts. Additional celebrities from the music industry will feature as cameos, and the series is intended to culminate with the release of an album.
The series is being developed by Adam F. Goldberg, Bill Barretta, and Jeff Yorkes with a ten episode order. Stay tuned for more details!
