Apologies for a lack of recent updates; as so often is the case, life and work conspired to keep me preoccupied last week, but here’s a look at what was happening while I wasn’t posting:
It seems like the Muppets are everywhere. During the past week alone they’ve appeared on WWE Raw (see previous post), The Hour and The Tonight Show (just to name a few shows) along with the covers of Wired Magazine and Entertainment Weekly.
Rick Lyon is reportedly developing a new puppet TV series called Roasters, that will feature celebrities and iconic figures being roasted by puppets (alas, the article link requires a subscription to Variety).
Puppets are also playing a role in the Occupy Wallstreet protests.
Remember Team Smithereen? It’s going back in to production with a new pilot and they’re looking for interns to help out. If you’re interested in learning about puppet fabrication, miniature model building, puppet wardrobe, digital animation, or prop fabrication contact Executive producer Don Asher for more information.
