Kanye West Developing 'Hip-Hop Meets the Muppets' Show


Kanye West


The rapper is venturing to the television world, launching a hip-hop charged muppets show that is supported by Comedy Central.

Together with Comedy Central, Kanye West is developing a muppets show that has the essence of hip-hop. Deriving the idea from his "Champion" music video where instead of appearing in person he uses his muppet version, the show is tentatively called "Alligator Boots" and is aimed to be premiered in 2009.

For the project, West has teamed up with fellow rapper Rhymefest and Comedy Central icon Daniel Kellison as the executive producers of the pilot that has reportedly been shot and will run for half an hour. The idea of the show is to have different celebrity hosting each episode, very much like the concept that was employed by the original Muppet Show. Kanye will host the pilot, and supply the music as well.

"Alligator Boots" is a production of Jackhole Prods, the same company that owns "Jimmy Kimmel Live". It is also supported by Adam Corolla who is behind Comedy Central's puppet show "Crank Yankers".
