AitF - the truth revealed
14 January 2007 | by rickjacobs1See all my reviews

I used to work for the Jim Henson Company, who produced this show for ABC.

Eight episodes were made in total but ABC only broadcast 2 in prime time, then when they put it on Saturday mornings I think it only lasted a week or two...

It wasn't a bad show, it was kind of a case of Henson management trying to do something original but they communication was so poor in the company that what came out was probably not as good as intended. We sold this show along with the new Muppet Show (MUPPETS TONIGHT) with a lot of fanfare, and my job was to pick up the pieces from all the networks who bought AITF at top dollar and scheduled it in prime time, only to hear that it was canceled right away and there will be no more episodes... shame it's not on DVD as it would probably do well as a cult show.
