Starting today, the incomparable Miss Piggy will offer her millions of fans a chance to chat live with her one-on-one via Facebook Messenger.
Miss Piggy, host of Up Late with Miss Piggy, as seen on “The Muppets” (Tuesday 8/7c on ABC) will be available for live chats Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 10:00am – 11:00am PST.
This one-on-one viewer outreach is a first for a star of Miss Piggy’s magnitude. “I see this as a gift to all those who love me, who admire me…and who have always dreamed the impossible dream of chatting with me,” said Miss Piggy. “Here’s your chance. Come and get it!”
Kermit the Frog, Executive Producer of “Up Late”, sees this as an opportunity for fans to get to know the real Miss Piggy. “I think having a conversation with Miss Piggy will give fans a good idea of what I go through every day. I think everyone will learn something, plus I’ll get an hour of peace and quiet while she’s chatting with fans. Win-win!”
Beginning on December 7, Miss Piggy’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/MuppetsMissPiggy) will feature a ‘Message’ button, allowing anyone to message her in real time on Facebook Messenger and start their own unique conversation with the late night talk show host.
This unique Artificial Intelligence-powered chat experience was created by Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media Labs, The Muppets Studios and imperson, a participant in the 2015 Disney Accelerator mentorship and investment program for technology-enabled startups in the media and entertainment space.
