The Muppet Show Pitch – this is how you do it
the genious Jim Henson and company shot two pilots of THE MUPPET SHOW – one in ’74 and another in ’75 – before the show got greenlit in ’76, first airing in September of that year [when I was 6 months old…]. I don’t know in which year the following video was made, but it’s incredible.
for some moments I thought it could also be satirizing the famous meltdown scene from the movie THE NETWORK, but that premiered in November of the same year – maybe it was the other way around, haha. anyway, this is how you pitch your show:
