Emmys 2013: 'House of Cards,' 'Arrested Development' change the game

If anything, the nominations for the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards indicate the honors are changing, along with the television business itself.And this year, that largely comes down to one word: Netflix.That pay service has become a major player in the Emmys -- which CBS televises Sunday, Sept. 22 -- for the first time, thanks to the two projects it backed that viewers couldn't see anywhere else (before their later home video releases, anyway): the Americanization of "House of Cards" and the revival of "Arrested Development."If the broadcast networks thought they had a lot to fear from cable, now they have direct delivery systems such as Netflix to contend with, too. And just how worrisome does cable continue to be for the ABCs, CBSes and NBCs of the world? Consider that only one of the six nominees for outstanding drama series -- "Downton Abbey" -- is from the broadcast world. And that's PBS.It's the same thing... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/09/zap-before-they-were-2013-emmy-nominees-pics.html

Jason Bateman scored his second career Emmy nomination this year for playing Michael Bluth on "Arrested Development," eight years after first being nominated for the role. That's great and all -- but in a certain part of the pop-culture consciousness, he'll always be Matthew Burton.You know, the lead character of "It's Your Move"? The one-season NBC sitcom from 1984-85? Welcome to Before They Were Emmy Nominees. Each Tuesday and Wednesday between now and the Emmy Awards on Sept. 22, we're going to look back at some early and obscure roles of a few of this year's acting nominees.

Another 'Arrested Development' Season? Tony Hale Says It's Likely

According to actor Tony Hale, it's likely. Hale, who plays Buster Bluth, sat down with HuffPost Live's Alyona Minkovski recently to talk about the successful resurgence of the show. He said that he was initially nervous about returning, he got excited once he got back into character. "When we got canceled in 2006, when you're kind of done with a job, you kind of go through a mourning process," Hale said. "So to get it resurrected and do it again, that was just such a gift." "Arrested Development" producers have already been in talks with Netflix about a new season. Hale said that scheduling might be an issue again, but that he and the show's other stars are definitely excited to see what story lines show creator Mitch Hurwitz will put together next. "It's always surprising," Hale said. "Everybody wants to jump on board because we're so curious as to what Mitch is going to come up with, what surprises he's going to give you."  Read More... http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/08/12/arrested-development-new-season_n_3745260.html?utm_hp_ref=tv

Will Arnett: 'Arrested Development' Season 5 won't leave Lucille Austero's fate 'unanswered'

It's no secret that "Arrested Development" could get a Season 5, though whether it ends up happening depends on the schedules of the cast. At least there is a story to tell, as Season 4 ended on some pretty major cliffhangers. One of those big storylines left open was the fate of Liza Minnelli's character Lucille Austero. There's been some speculation that "Arrested Development's" next iteration will be a murder mystery, which Will Arnett says he'd love to see happen. "Put it this way, we're not going to leave it unanswered," Arnett tells Zap2it at CBS' TCA party of Lucille's open-ended storyline. So will Season 5 actually happen? Arnett was careful not to give any details away and make it clear that everything's still up in the air. "No details on that," he says. "We've just got to work out whether it's going to happen and make sure that we kind of get all the... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/07/will-arnett-arrested-development-season-5-wont-leave-lucille-austeros-fate-unanswered.html
