Yariv Milchan and Michael Schaefer of New Regency and long-time Henson collaborator John Tartaglia (Splash and Bubbles, Johnny and the Sprites) are also executive producing. Showrunners Matt Fusfeld and Alex Cuthbertson (New Girl) are attached to executive produce and write. Rita Peruggi (The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance) will produce. Dave Goelz (performing Boober and Uncle Travelling Matt) and Karen Prell (performing Red) are also attached to the project. Harvey Mason Jr. is the executive music producer for the series.
