DEVELOPMENT STAGE: ordered to pilot
DESCRIPTION: (from TBS's press release) TBS recently completed shooting a pilot for THE LATE NIGHT BUFFET WITH AUGIE AND DEL, which mixes newly created puppets from the world-famous Jim Hensons Creature Shop interacting with live celebrity guests in a talk-show format. Puppets Augustus Pfiffle and Delbert Kastle serve as hosts for the show, much of which will be improvised between the puppets and the guests who appear. THE LATE NIGHT BUFFET is being produced for TBS by The Jim Henson Company, with Brian Henson (Farscape) and Bill Barretta (The Muppets Wizard of Oz) serving as both executive producers and puppeteers.
