Interviewing an acting legend – especially one working on new Arrested Development episodes, as as well as fan favorite Archer – isn’t a bad way to spend an afternoon. On Season 4 of the beloved, resurrected sitcom (all 15 are available this Sunday on Netflix), Jessica Walter is back as boozy matriarch Lucille Bluth and, well... the time away hasn’t made Lucille a better mother. But that’s the way we like it. Read More... http://www.tvfanatic.com/2013/05/arrested-development-exclusive-jessica-walter-on-the-return-of-l/
brightcove.createExperiences(); Michael Bluth is at the center of "Arrested Development," and so too is the man who plays him, Jason Bateman. That much at least won't be changing when the fan-favorite comedy returns on May 26 with its fourth season. "[Michael] is still the moral center, but the curve has dropped quite a bit," Bateman confirms to Zap2it in a recent interview. "They -- the rest of his family -- are in even deeper dire straits, but he is still slightly elevated from them in his despair. But he's pretty banged up and he's trying to get it back together and get them propped up a little bit too."He elaborates, "There's nothing really funny about a family that's all okay, so these episodes are a process to kind of rehabilitate and carry on and tell the rest of the story." Seven years have passed since development on the show was once again arrested --... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/05/arrested-development-jason-bateman-says-season-4-is-about-rehabilitating-the-bluths.html
Much to the surprise and joy of every Arrested Development fan, the Emmy Award-winning comedy series following the wildly eccentric and entertainingly dysfunctional Bluth family is back with 15 new episodes debuting on Netflix on May 26th. Having seen the first new episode, I can say that the show is as twisted and funny as ever, and feels like it hasn’t missed a beat in the seven years since the last episode aired. From creator/writer Mitch Hurwitz, the series stars Will Arnett, Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, David Cross, Portia de Rossi, Tony Hale, Alia Shawkat, Jeffrey Tambor and Jessica Walter. READ MORE...
Four clips have been released for the fourth season of Arrested Development. Earlier this week, I posted six questions about the upcoming season, and these clips provide some answers. First, the language will still be bleeped, which is a nice touch (although we don’t know if it will be bleeped throughout the season; it’s just bleeped in this instance). Also, there’s a throwback to the confusion regarding bees and beads. READ MORE... ">READ MORE...
Fans have spent the seven years since FOX canceled "Arrested Development" waiting for the Bluths to return, and in just a couple of days they'll get their wish. Netflix will start streaming all 15 episodes of Season 4 at 12:01 a.m. PT Sunday (May 26). It has been a long, winding road to get to this point. How long and how winding? Very, as you'll see with this timeline of significant events in the life, death and resurrection of "Arrested Development." Summer 2002: Ron Howard pitches an idea to his fellow Imagine Entertainment executives for a comedy series that's tightly scripted but filmed to look like a reality show or documentary. Imagine meets with a couple of writers, one of whom is Mitch Hurwitz, who was coming off "The Ellen Show" at CBS and had also worked on "The Golden Girls" and "The John Larroquette Show."RELATED: Zap2it's "Arrested Development" Rewatch -- catch up with the... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/05/arrested-development-track-the-bluths-long-journey-with-this-timeline.html

Billions of jokes large and small pack the original run of Arrested Development , many of which you can imagine being birthed in a late-night writers-room spitballing session. But some of these gags and story lines seem so random and specific that we sensed there was a fascinatingly weird origin story to them beyond “It was 2 a.m. and we were picking at a pizza …” Indeed, when we called Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz to ask about the gestation of some of our favorite jokes, the stories behind them made them all funnier. So read on for his tales of the inspiration behind the Cornballer, Tobias’s dalliance with the Blue Man Group, Carl Weathers’s cheapness, and more.

To accommodate busy schedules, the actors are paid on a sliding scale depending on how much air time they receive. http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/thr/television/~3/Ym3DG40tKCM/story01.htm
Originally, the new episodes of "Arrested Development" were conceived as something of a "Choose Your Own Adventure" series for fans: Creator Mitch Hurwitz said we’d be able to watch the new episodes on Netflix any which way we pleased and in any order. Then, last week, after he wrapped the final mix on all fifteen new episodes, he said, scratch that, never mind, please watch sequentially! And, before the shows go live Sunday at 12:01 a.m., PST, he’s intent on making sure everyone knows he has redacted his earlier strategy. “I’m really doing everything I can to put out that misconception that it can be watched in any order,” Hurwitz told Vulture during an interview Tuesday. “Although I really did have that ambition at one point.” http://feeds.huffingtonpost.com/~r/HP/Entertainment/~3/GB8EdmP8Hps/binge-watch-arrested-development-netflix_n_3320572.html
brightcove.createExperiences(); Seven years might have passed between the end of "Arrested Development" Season 3 and the beginning of Season 4, but don't expect any of the show's central characters to have changed dramatically. If Tony Hale is to be believed, his character Buster Bluth has actually regressed in terms of his maturity. "Buster has not matured. I think the first series he was probably around a 7-year-old maturity. I'd say now he's probably at a 5," Hale tells Zap2it in a recent interview. "He's gone back. Well, he's just gotten worse and worse. I think there's just probably years and years of isolation. I mean, going to the pharmacy's a big day for him, so if he can get out of the house, that's a big day." He adds, "He's still got his juice addiction. I think he might have some support groups for his juice addiction that we don't know about. But that's... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/05/arrested-development-tony-hale-talks-season-4-liza-minnelli-and-movie-plans.html
