New shows headed to ABC this season include "The Muppets" and "The Real O'Neals," according to Deadline.com.

Produced by ABC Studios and The Muppets Studio, "The Muppets" is described as a "contemporary, documentary-style show that, for the first time ever, will explore the Muppets' personal lives and relationships, both at home and at work, as well as romances, break-ups, achievements, disappointments, wants and desires," according to the online industry source. Co-writers and executive producers of this "more adult" version of "The Muppet Show" are Bill Prady and Bob Kushell.

Executive-produced by David Windsor, Casey Johnson, Brian Pines, Dan McDermott and Dan Savage, "The Real O'Neals" stars Martha Plimpton, Jay R. Ferguson, Noah Galvin, Mathew Shively, Bebe Wood and Mary Hollis Inboden.

Written by David Windsor and Casey Johnson, Deadline describes the series as a "contemporary take on a seemingly perfect Catholic family, whose lives take an unexpected turn when surprising truths are revealed. Instead of ruining their family, the honesty triggers a new, messier chapter where everyone stops pretending to be perfect and actually starts being real."
