What happens to the Muppets once the cameras stop rolling?

We’ve had little information about the newest Muppets series from The Big Bang Theory co-creator Bill Prady and Anger Management’s Bob Kushell, which just got greenlit by ABC. It’ll be a documentary-style show that focuses on the Muppets’ personal lives and more more adult themes (something we’ll have to get used to), but we could only imagine what that would entail until now with the release of the show’s first trailer during ABC’s upfronts.

Basically? They get into the same types of situations that we humans do. They get stuck in traffic, smoke pot, juggle coworkers and home lives, and they have to deal with their exes and the parents who don’t like them. They just have to do it with some fur or fins attached. (Although maybe not so much biting our stitches.)

The Muppets will air Tuesdays this fall on ABC.
