Allan Trautman (Theater MFA 78) says, “I was the lead animatronic puppeteer for the title character in Earth to Ned. The show follows Ned, a blue-skinned alien, and his lieutenant Cornelius, who were sent to scout Earth for an eventual invasion. However, during their visit, Ned and Cornelius became obsessed with pop culture and now host a talk show that is broadcasted from the bridge of their spaceship. The show will feature real-life celebrity guests being interviewed late-night talk show style. The famous Jim Henson’s Creature Shop will be bringing to life the character of Ned and the rest of the crew. The show will debut on the Disney+ streaming service, likely in late spring or early summer 2020.”
