On Friday, Sept. 4, Disney+ will debut 10 episodes of its first original talk show, “Earth to Ned,” produced by The Jim Henson Company. This new show stars extraterrestrial creatures Ned and Cornelius as they interview some of the biggest stars in our galaxy.
“Earth to Ned” stars alien commander Ned and his lieutenant Cornelius, who call of 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… celebrities. With assistance from the ship’s artificial intelligence, BETI, and the destructive CLODs (Cloned Living Organisms of Destruction), Ned must keep his show a secret from his home planet, or else suffer the wrath of his father, the Admiral of the Galactic Fleet.
Each episode focuses on a topic or theme that is both unique to humans and fascinating to Ned, including comedy, sports, social media, and fashion.
Celebrity guests this season will include Joshua Bassett (“High School Musical: The Musical: The Series”), Rachel Bilson (“The O.C.”), Michael Ian Black (“Wet Hot American Summer”), Rachel Bloom (“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”), Gina Carano (“The Mandalorian”), RuPaul (“RuPaul’s Drag Race”), Taye Diggs (“Rent”), Lil Rel Howery (“Get Out”), Bindi and Robert Irwin (“Crikey! It’s the Irwins”), Gillian Jacobs (“Love”), NeNe Leakes (“The Real Housewives of Atlanta”), Thomas Lennon (“Reno 911!”), Joel McHale (“Community”), Andy Richter (“Conan”), Olivia Rodrigo (“High School Musical: The Musical: The Series”), Eli Roth (“Hostel”), Kristen Schaal (“Gravity Falls”), Paul Scheer (“The League”), Jenny Slate (“Zootopia”), Raven Symoné (“Raven’s Home”), Reggie Watts (“The Late Late Show with James Corden”), and Billy Dee Williams (“Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back”).
