Here’s how Disney+ and the Jim Henson Co. describe it: the comedy follows Ned, a blue-skinned alien, and his lieutenant Cornelius, who were sent to scout Earth for an eventual invasion — but instead became obsessed with popular culture. Now they host a talk show, broadcast from the bridge of their spaceship hidden deep underground, where they interview our most precious commodity — celebrities — to talk about Ned’s current pop culture obsessions. Ned will be bringing real-life celebrity guests to his ship from across the known universe and interviewing them, late-night talk show style, in hopes of producing the ultimate talk show — making Ned a celebrity and putting him further off-mission. And the more Ned learns about our human culture, the more obsessed he becomes.Original article from The Hollywood Reporter, Exclusive
The characters of Ned, Cornelius, their artificial intelligence BETI and army of “Clods” (cloned living objects of destruction, all featured below) are brought to life by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop, the same team behind Netflix’s Dark Crystal: The Age of Resistance.
