Disney+ talk show 'Earth to Ned' to premiere Sept. 4

Aug. 17 (UPI) -- Earth to Ned, a new talk show from The Jim Henson Company which features an alien as the host, is coming to Disney+ on Sept. 4.

The series will follow Ned, an alien commander, and his lieutenant Cornelius, who call off an invasion of Earth after falling in love with human culture.
