Jim Henson Puppet Comedy Picked up by NBC

The NBC network is taking on a new Jim Henson Compnay puppet comedy series called The New Neighbors, which is described as a "a single-camera comedy project that centers on a family that lives in Palm Springs and is aghast with their new neighbors -- a gang of puppets."

The project will be developed by Jim Henson Studios along with Universal Television. 30 Rock executive producer John Riggi and John Hoffman will be writing and executive producing the new series along side Henson Company CEO and Jim Henson's daughter Lisa Henson.

This should end up being a very interesting series. At least we know it's got some talented funny writers behind it, so chances are it will be funny. What are your thought's on a TV project like this?
