Kanye West is set to write the music for a new comedy show on US television.

West and rapper Rhymefest were the executive producers for the pilot of 'Alligator Boots', and a series might hit screens in America in 2009.

C21media.net reported that the show is being 'billed as "hip-hop meets 'The Muppets'", and will see puppets, celebrity guests and music by West and Rhymefest in each episode.

One of the brains behind 'South Park', Jon Kimmel, is also set to work on the show for Comedy Central in the US.
