Muppets Make Hollywood Reporter's 10 TV Pilots Likely to Score Series Pickups"Llist!

The Hollywood Reporter, listed "10 TV Pilots Likely to Score Series Pickups". The Muppets came in at number 6, and this is what they had to say:

6. The Muppets (ABC)
The contemporary take on Kermit, Piggy and more is considered the biggest slam-dunk of the season, with a series pickup all but a formality. From The Big Bang Theory's Bill Prady and Bob Kushell, the documentary-style show filmed a pilot presentation that was incredibly well received. A series pickup is expected as ABC Entertainment Group president Paul Lee is high on corporate synergy (see Marvel, Once Upon a Time). 
That's excellent news. Fingers crossed for a pickup!

It's NUMBER 1 on EW's upcoming pilot list!
The Muppets (ABC): Who doesn’t want to see the Muppets back on TV? We’re told the documentary-style pilot presentation made for ABC was so good it received a standing ovation in the room. “It looked awesome,” said one insider of the project, which will explore the Muppets’ relationships and personal lives for the first time. “It has an edge to it that adults will appreciate but that will safely go over kids’ heads—a quality Modern Family has as well.”
