The series follows The Electric Mayhem — Dr. Teeth on lead vocals and keyboard, Animal on drums, Janice on lead guitar, Floyd Pepper on bass guitar, Zoot on saxophone, and Lips on trumpet — as they set out to record their first studio album of songs.
The series is intended to culminate with the release of an album featuring original songs and covers.
The Muppets will be joined by Lilly Singh as Nora, a junior executive for a record label who will oversee the band in their efforts. Additional cast members include Tahj Mowry as Gary “Moog” Moogowski, a super fan of the band who uses his knowledge of the group to aid Nora, Saara Chaudry as Nora's younger sister Hannah, and Anders Holm in a recurring guest role as JJ, a tech entrepreneur and Nora's ex.
Muppet performers for the series include Bill Barretta, Dave Goelz, Matt Vogel, Eric Jacobson, David Rudman, Peter Linz, Leslie Carrara-Rudolph, David Bizzaro, Donna Kimball, and Bruce Lanoil.
The series is being developed by Adam F. Goldberg, Bill Barretta, and Jeff Yorkes with a ten episode order that began filming on April 25 and wrapped on August 5, 2022. Location shooting included the RMS Queen Mary and the El Rey Theatre in California.
Each episode will run approximately thirty minutes, with the production team looking at the series as a five hour movie narrative. Writers on the series include Julie Bean, Hannah Friedman, Crystal Shaw, Hans Rodionoff, Gabrielle Rodriguez, and Danielle Maransky.
