You Can Finally Watch the Great 10-Minute Sizzle Reel That Sold ABC on The Muppets

The new Muppets TV show doesn’t air on ABC until this fall, but fans who are eager for an earlier glimpse behind the scenes are in luck: the 10-minute “behind-the-scenes” video that premiered at Comic Con to a standing ovation is now available online. The clip, which claims, in a Star Wars-esque crawl-in, to be the very presentation that convinced ABC to air the show, features documentary-style footage of the Muppets in the writers’ room, filming a dramatic war scene, and coping with the difficulties of producing a TV show, 30 Rock-style.
