"Due Date" is the first episode of Muppets Now.

Official description

The Muppets are about to launch their new digital series, Muppets Now, but just when Scooter is about to hit the 'upload' button, Kermit the Frog inadvertently alerts the rest of the Muppet gang that they are about to go live - unleashing an avalanche of last-minute notes, tweaks, changes, suggestions, revisions, and ideas.

Miss Piggy tries an impactful beauty treatment with Taye Diggs before dishing on personal style with Linda Cardellini. Muppet fanboy Walter uncovers Kermit’s secret passion for photgraphy. The Swedish Chef challenges Carlina Will to a culinary curry cook-off where things get heated. Finally, Kermit goes one-on-one with RuPaul for a conversation about multi-tasking, all while fielding requests and interruptions from other Muppets.
