Disney+'s Unscripted Slate Includes Kristen Bell's Encore!, Jeff Goldblum Docuseries and More — Watch Trailers

Disney Plus TV Shows

In addition to The Mandalorian trailer, myriad Marvel castings and a Lizzie McGuire sequel, Disney+ has revealed its inaugural slate of unscripted series, headlined by Kristen Bell, Jeff Goldblum and Kermit the Frog.

First up is Encore!, hosted by Bell. The series, which started as an ABC special back in December 2017, “brings together former castmates of high school musicals, tasking them with re-creating their original performance years after they last performed it, in a high school reunion like no other,” according to the official logline. It premieres in tandem with the streaming service’s launch on Tuesday, Nov. 12.

Next up is The World According to Jeff Goldblum, a 12-episode docuseries from National Geographic, which also debuts on Nov. 12. In each episode, viewers will get to see the world through Goldblum’s eyes — whatever that means.

Then, on Tuesday, Dec. 3, Disney+ will launch the One Day at Disney, a 52-episode, short-form series that will kick off with a feature-length documentary. Each installment promises to “shine a dazzling light on the creative forces in front of the cameras and behind the scenes at The Walt Disney Company.”

Last, but certainly not least, is Muppets Now, a short-form “unscripted” series coming in 2020. You can read Kermit the Frog’s heavily redacted announcement below:


TVLine hears that Disney+ episodes will be released on a weekly basis, versus the all-at-once “binge” model.
