Shapeshifter Provides Post for Arrested Development
On Sunday, May 26th Netflix will simultaneously release 15 new episodes of the willfully absurd television sitcom Arrested Development which offered viewers a look into the lives of the fictitious Bluth family –a formerly wealthy and habitually dysfunctional group of self-centered lunatics. The show, from creator Mitchell Hurwitz, made its debut on FOX TV in 2003, and received widespread critical acclaim, including six Emmy Awards and one Golden Globe Award, and attracted a cult following. In 2007, TIME Magazine listed it as among the “100 Best TV Shows of All-TIME.” ‘’
Arrested Development ran for three seasons before its cancellation by the FOX network in 2006. The Netflix series, which represents the show’s fourth season, once again stars cast members Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, Portia de Rossi, Tony Hale, Michael Cera, Alia Shawkat, David Cross, Jeffrey Tambor and Jessica Walter.
