Arrested Development Team Developing 'Rich Jackass'

According to The Hollywood Reporter, FOX is looking for some more comedy magic from the producer/creators of Arrested Development, Mitch Hurwitz and Jim Vallely, who are writing a pilot script along with Development star Will Arnett (Gob Bluth).

The yet-to-be-named pilot will star Arnett as a self-absorbed rich Beverly Hills "jackass." His character's world is turned upside-down when he falls in love with a "charitable tree-hugging woman who can't stand his lifestyle or values."

This script, which is intended to be another single-camera comedy like Development, is part of Arnett's development deal with FOX that he signed last fall. Arnett and Hurwitz most recently worked together on the FOX animated series Sit Down, Shut Up, which starred Arnett as the voice of the gym coach.
