Muppets Mobilize For Must-See QVC Adventure

WEST CHESTER, Pa., March 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Imagine a pig, a pair of frogs and their posse walk into QVC. Sound like a far-fetched story filled with contagious laughter? Well, it will be reality on March 16 when the Muppets burst through QVC's doors to celebrate Disney's Muppets Most Wanted, in theatres March 21.

That's right. The Muppets are coming to QVC!

Miss Piggy...check. Kermit the Frog...check. Constantine...check. The Great Gonzo, Pepe the King Prawn, Beaker... check, check, check. The global multimedia retailer is eager to welcome the Muppets for a day full of abundant adventure and special surprises.

"We might be crazy to let the Muppets assume control of QVC on March 16, but it's too late to back out now," commented Doug Rose, senior vice president of marketing and programming for QVC. "We're just crossing our fingers that they know what they're doing and that nobody gets hurt."

The fun-filled day will include numerous opportunities for the Muppets to mingle and cavort with many of QVC's program hosts and celebrity guests. Among them, Swedish Chef will put his cooking skills to the test during a special edition of In the Kitchen with David ®. Pepe the King Prawn will prove he's no shrimp when it comes to social commentary throughout the day. And Link Hogthrob may have a dream come true with the chance to serve as QVC co-host. Entertainment icon and fashion laureate Joan Rivers will also be on air that day, which is sure to lead to even more excitement for the gang.

Given their pop-culture limelight, Miss Piggy, Kermit and other beloved Muppets will get beauty tips from QVC guests Chaz Dean, Laura Geller, Mally, Josie Maran and Sherri Shepherd. The crew will also have the chance to meet style and fashion experts Jill Martin, Lori Goldstein, Dennis Basso and Joe Zee, who will be sure to keep the film stars on trend. Of course, there's no doubt the Muppets will get in on some whimsical behind-the-scenes action during their whirlwind visit.

One of the movie's stars is no stranger to QVC, however. Undeniable style icon Miss Piggy made recent headlines with her appearance at QVC's Red Carpet Style event in Los Angeles. The ever-fabulous fashionista made her foray into the world of design with Miss Piggy's Haute Tote, the special-edition tote bag for the gala event, and she's eager to return to QVC this Sunday.

"When it comes to shopping, no one has more experience than moi," said movie star and world-class diva Miss Piggy. "And QVC keeps my shopping skills at the peak of performance. I am really looking forward to connecting with the QVC woman. We have so much in common. We're fabulous. We're fashionable! And we always get what we want!"
