Check out a brief preview of Kanye West’s new Comedy Central show called Alligator Boots. The show is billed as a “Hip-Hop Muppet Show” and will be produced by Jackhole Prods., the production company founded by Jimmy Kimmel, Daniel Kellison and Adam Carolla that was also behind Comedy Central’s puppet-centric “Crank Yankers.”
The project, which is under consideration for 2009, would feature music produced and performed by West and fellow rapper Rhymefest, both of whom are serving as executive producers on the pilot alongside Kellison. West also hosts the pilot; the idea is to have a different celebrity guest host for every episode, similar to the setup on the original “Muppet Show.” Kimmel’s brother Jon (“South Park”) is co-exec producer on the pilot.
