" 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,
craftedfor 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 centres on 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 Fünke (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 20thCentury Fox Television for Netflix. Arrested Development has won
accolades from the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (Emmy ® ), AFI, the
Golden Globes, Producer's Guild Awards, Screen Actors Guild, the Television
Critics Association and the Writer's Guild, among others.
