Read Script Pages from the Scrapped ‘Muppets Live Another Day’ Disney+ Series

Even though there has been some decent original programming on Disney+ so far, it’s been missing something that would have made an outstanding addition to the line-up: The Muppets.

The show was called Muppets Live Another Day, and rather than trying to create a new modern Muppets series, the show was set immediately following t...
