Highly-Anticipated Fourth Season Launches with 15-Episodes (Not a Typo)
Twitter Pitch: We've made a huge mistake. There are actually 15 NEW episodes
of #ArrestedDevelopment launching on @Netflix May 26
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., April 4, 2013 /CNW/ - Netflix will premiere its
highly-anticipated fourth season of Arrested Development on Sunday, May 26,
2013. All 15-episodes of the Emmy(®) Award-winning comedy from series
creator/executive producer Mitchell Hurwitz will be available for members to
watch instantly at launch.
Arrested Development will be available to all Netflix members instantly at
12:01 AM PDT in territories where Netflix is available – U.S., Canada, the
UK, Ireland, Latin America, Brazil and the Nordics.
"Arrested Development is now widely viewed as one of the top TV comedies of
all time and Mitch Hurwitz is bringing it to Netflix in a brand new way,
crafted for the on-demand generation that has come to discover the show in the
years since it last appeared on TV," said Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer
for Netflix. "The highly anticipated return of this show is sure to make
history all over again."
"Ted said that? Wow. Well don't print this obviously, but he's going to be
immensely disappointed. In truth we are doing something very ambitious that
can only be done with Netflix as partners and on their platform. Finally my
simple wish for the show is coming true: that it be broadcast every second
around the clock to every television, computer or mobile device in existence,"
said series creator and executive producer Mitch Hurwitz.
Arrested Development centers around Michael Bluth (Jason Bateman) and his
eccentric family comprised of his son George Michael (Michael Cera), his
father George Bluth Sr. (Jeffrey Tambor), his mother Lucille (Jessica Walter),
his brothers George Oscar Bluth II (Will Arnett), Buster Bluth (Tony Hale) and
sister Lindsay Funke (Portia de Rossi), and Lindsay's husband Tobias (David
Cross) and their daughter Maeby (Alia Shawkat).
Mitchell Hurwitz, Brian Grazer, Ron Howard, Jim Vallely and Troy Miller are
executive producers on Arrested Development, and it is produced by Imagine TV
and 20(th) Century Fox Television for Netflix. Arrested Development has
garnered accolades from the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (Emmy(®)),
AFI, the Golden Globes, Producer's Guild Awards, Screen Actor's Guild, the
Television Critics Association and the Writer's Guild, among others.
