Have you ever wondered what a talk show hosted by an alien might be like? We’re about to find out!
Disney Plus released a trailer for its upcoming talk show Earth to Ned֪–hosted by an Alien. Well, an alien Muppet.
The show is produced by The Jim Henson Company–of The Muppets, Fraggle Rock, Farscape, The Dark Crystal and the Muppets of Sesame Street fame–and Marwar Junction Productions.
It is described as “a late-night talk show hosted by alien commander Ned and his lieutenant Cornelius, who call off their invasion of Earth after they fall in love with human culture. Broadcasting from the bridge of their spaceship, hidden deep underground, Ned and Cornelius interview Earth’s greatest resource, celebrities. With the help of the ship’s artificial intelligence, BETI, and the destructive CLODS, Ned must keep his show a secret from his home planet or suffer the wrath of the Admiral of the Galactic Fleet.”
Ned is voiced by Paul Rugg (Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain, Dave the Barbarian) while his lieutenant Cornelius is voiced by Kyle Pacek (Jawa, The Mandalorian)
Celebrity guests of the first season include: Joshua Bassett, Rachel Bilson, Michael Ian Black, Rachel Bloom, Gina Carano, RuPaul, Taye Diggs, Lil Rel Howery, Bindi and Robert Irwin, Gillian Jacobs, NeNe Leakes, Thomas Lennon, Joel McHale, Andy Richter, Olivia Rodrigo, Eli Roth, Kristen Schaal, Paul Scheer, Jenny Slate, Raven Symoné, Reggie Watts and Billy Dee Williams.
