    NBC Picks Up Silly Human and Puppet Hybrid Comedy Series THE NEW NABORS From The Jim Henson Company

    Between NBC picking up Whitney, looking to can Community, and sitting low on the networks rankings, it’s clear that the Peacock is not at the top of their game. As a matter of fact, the network is so desperate, they’re looking to inspiration from their past success to fuel their future endeavors. Back in the 80′s the network found some laughs and big ratings with their puppet and human hybrid series ALF, and now Deadline reports the network has just picked up The New Nabors, a series from the Jim Henson Company following a human family who deals with the repercussions of living next door to a family of puppets.

    I guess that makes sense since Cousin Skeeter has probably been out of work for awhile, and with all the caller ID available on phones nowadays, Crank Yankers have to be looking for work. But seriously, this kind of project kind of screams desperation, and sounds cheesy as hell. But perhaps if the right people from Jim Henson’s offices are involved, the same kind of energy infused into The Muppets, hitting theaters this weekend, could end up on the small screen. Of course I’d rather just see The Muppet Show make a comeback again. Afterlife writer John Hoffman and 30 Rock executive producer John Riggi will write the script which was developed with Lisa Henson and all will executive produce the show longtime Henson producer Alex Rockwell. Maybe this could turn out to be something solid like Greg the Bunny, which was cancelled all too soon? We’ll see.

    Another Reason to Keep COMMUNITY on the Air: Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice

    NBC has pulled Community from the network’s midseason schedule so we can all continue to enjoy the magic of the wretched new sitcom, Whitney. In fairness, NBC has given Dan Harmon‘s hilarious and brilliant sitcom over two seasons to find an audience and that audience has never come. But the ones who have shown up (i.e. smart people) have been rewarded with references so clever that sometime they cannot be seen with the naked eye…or at least not in a single episode (or even a single TV series).

    Case in point: a Community fan recently noticed that the show had directly referenced Tim Burton‘s Beetlejuice once per season for the past three seasons, which would of course complete the eponymous character’s summoning chant, “Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice.” On any other show, that would simply be a coincidence and a writer’s room that liked the 1988 comedy as a go-to reference. On Community, it’s par for the course. Hit the jump to check out the proof of Beetlejuice summoning and hope that a Michael Keaton guest spot is on the way.

    ALCATRAZ Teaser Trailer

    Here’s the gigantic official synopsis for Alcatraz:


    From executive producer J.J. Abrams (FRINGE, “Lost,” “Star Trek” and the upcoming “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol” and “Super 8″) and writer and executive producer Elizabeth Sarnoff (“Lost,” “Deadwood”) comes ALCATRAZ, the chilling new thriller centered on America’s most infamous prison and one-time home to the nation’s most notorious murderers, rapists, kidnappers and thieves.

    When San Francisco Police Department DET. REBECCA MADSEN (Sarah Jones, “Sons of Anarchy”) is assigned to a grisly homicide case, a fingerprint leads her to a shocking suspect: JACK SYLVANE (guest star Jeffrey Pierce, “The Nine”), a former Alcatraz inmate who died decades ago. Given her family history – both her grandfather and surrogate uncle, RAY ARCHER (Robert Forster, “Jackie Brown”), were guards at the prison – Madsen’s interest is immediately piqued, and once the enigmatic, knows-everything-but-tells-nothing government agent EMERSON HAUSER (Sam Neill, “Jurassic Park”) tries to impede her investigation, she’s doggedly committed. Madsen turns to Alcatraz expert and comic book enthusiast, DR. DIEGO “DOC” SOTO (Jorge Garcia, “Lost”), to piece together the inexplicable sequence of events. The twosome discovers that Sylvane is not only alive, but he’s loose on the streets of San Francisco, leaving bodies in his wake. And strangely, he hasn’t aged a day since he was in Alcatraz, when the prison was ruled by the iron-fisted WARDEN EDWIN JAMES (Jonny Coyne, “Undercovers”) and the merciless ASSOCIATE WARDEN E.B. TILLER (Jason Butler Harner, “The Changeling”).

    Madsen and Soto reluctantly team with Agent Hauser and his technician, LUCY BANERJEE (Parminder Nagra, “ER”), to stop Sylvane’s vengeful killing spree. By delving into Alcatraz history, government cover-ups and Rebecca’s own heritage, the team will ultimately discover that Sylvane is only a small part of a much larger, more sinister present-day threat. For while he may be the first, it quickly becomes clear that Sylvane won’t be the last prisoner to reappear from Alcatraz.

    Through the course of the investigation, Madsen and Soto will learn that Agent Hauser has known about the prison’s secret history and has been awaiting the prisoners’ return. Soto will witness his life’s work – the history of Alcatraz – come alive. Madsen will be forced to keep her supportive San Francisco cop fiancÚ, JIMMY DICKENS (Santiago Cabrera, “Heroes”), at arm’s length from the highly classified assignment as she sees everything she thought she knew about her family’s past shattered, all while fighting to keep the country safe from history’s most dangerous criminals.

    ALCATRAZ is produced by Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Bad Robot Productions and Warner Bros. Television. The series is executive-produced by J.J. Abrams, Bryan Burk (FRINGE) and Elizabeth Sarnoff. Steven Lilien (“Kyle XY”) & Bryan Wynbrandt (“Kyle XY”) and Sarnoff wrote the pilot, and Danny Cannon (“CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” “CSI: Miami”) directed and executive-produced the pilot.
