ABC to Screen 'The Muppets' Early With Mobile Theater Tour

ABC is hitting the road in a bid to provide early sampling to three high-profile new fall shows. The network will offer early screenings of The Muppets and Quantico as well as Blood & Oil with a six-market tour. (The Muppets will preview the 10-minute presentation since there is not yet a pilot as the show doesn't begin production until August.) 

All screenings will take place inside the Cinetransformer (seen above), a 91-seat mobile cinema that is housed inside a 53-foot double-expandable trailer that is said to replicate every facet of a movie theater experience. 

The tour will kick off June 11 at CMA Fest in Nashville and run through June 14. Fans at all six locations — Chicago Navy Pier, Riverdays in Detroit, Summerfest in Milwaukee, the San Diego County Fair and the California State Fair — will also receive swag including t-shirts, pins and hats. 

The mobile tour marks the first of what are expected to be many new and forward-looking approaches by the broadcast networks to generate early buzz in an attempt to cut through the clutter of Premiere Week. 

ABC will launch the bulk of its new fall lineup during mid-September — with many of the season premieres already facing CBS' bows. 

A full schedule of ABC's Summer Block Party screenings follows.
