Created by Mitchell Hurwitz, Arrested Development stars Jason Bateman as Michael Bluth, Michael Cera as Michael’s son George, Jeffrey Tambor as George Bluth Sr., and Jessica Walter as the family matriarch. The Bluth brothers are played by Will Arnett (‘George Oscar Bluth II’) and Tony Hale (‘Buster Bluth) with Portia de Rossi as their sister Lindsay Funke.
“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,” stated 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,” joked series creator and executive producer Mitch Hurwitz.
