Black Muppet Babies Starring Kanye??

The New York Daily News reports that television executive Doug Herzog, known for helping bring “South Park,” “The Daily Show,” and “The Colbert Report” to the network, dropped hints at the potential venture. “We’re working on a pilot with Kanye,” he told the Daily News. “It’s going to be a black version of ‘The Muppets.’” Reports from The Hollywood Reporter have also confirmed the project’s development, describing the pilot’s set-up as a 30-minute first-run for Comedy Central to consider going in to their 2009 programming. In addition to roles behind the scenes as executive producers, Ye and Rhymesfest would also reportedly produce and perform music throughout the series. Each episode would feature a new celebrity guest host. Production for the pilot stems from Jackhole Productions, most know for the successful puppet-based show “Crank Yankers.” If picked up by the network, “Alligator Boots” would begin sometime in 2009.
