Just to reaffirm how much cooler television is across the pond, BBC (more specifically their children division CBBC) has released a trailer for its newest show being co-produced by none other than The Jim Henson Company and Sticky Pictures: Me and My Monsters. A live action series about a family called The Carlsons, Me and My Monsters features "three out of control and hilarious monsters" (Norman, Fiend and Haggis) who have taken residence in their basement.
According to Henson's official press release,
It's a comedy that hinges on the relationship between the young boy in the family and the monsters. It's very visual and it's got that Henson look...For my money it's got a sort of a My Pet Monster vibe to it combined with Henson's previous sitcom, Aliens in the Family. Having only recently premiered this past October chances are that it will be sometime before the series makes its way to our shores, but you can be sure it'll be one I keep my eye on.
