New series Jim Henson's Frog School in development

Jim Henson Television has decided to give the world an inside look into what made Kermit the reptile he is today. Jim Henson's Frog School is a live action/Muppet preschool comedy (with some short animated segments) that centers around Kermie's adolescent years at Frog School, where his education was based on an ancient frog philosophy stressing virtue and responsibility for one's actions towards others and the environment. Jim Henson's daughter Lisa will serve as executive producer on the 26 x half-hour series, which is budgeted at between $350,000 and $400,000 per episode. Animated sequences illustrate fables and myths from around the world that are used to teach the reptilian students about life outside the swamp.

The project is part of a new Henson curriculum focus guided by an educational advisory board established to help the company follow through on its assertion that TV can change people's lives, says Juliet Blake, president of Jim Henson Television US. Henson is hoping to carve a niche with preschool shows that tackle school readiness, Blake explains, from both an emotional and curriculum perspective. She likens Frog School to Bear in the Big Blue House, the producer of which -- Alex Rockwell -- is also on-board for the new Henson offering.

Jim Henson's Frog School is in early development.
