The Jim Henson Company and Weird Al team up for TV Series


Best-known for parodying hit songs over the past 30-odd years, musician Weird Al Yankovic’s next gig is working on an animated series based on his children’s books, which will see him spoofing his younger self—well, sort of. 

The upcoming series is based on Yankovic’s books, New York Times Bestseller "When I Grow Up and My New Teacher and Me!", which both star an imaginative eight-year-old boy named Billy.

Helping to transpose Billy from print to television is producer The Jim Henson Company. While still in the very early conceptual stages, the yet-to-be-named series will consist of 11-minute episodes that take place primarily in a school setting.
