Now that fans, critics and new viewers of the series have had some time to digest the new episodes of Arrested Development, show creator Mitch Hurwitz took some time out to discuss those episodes, as well as the future of the series. During the interview, the show’s executive producer/writer talked about how the movie that was first talked about evolved into these episodes, that there’s a lot you can do in television that you can’t do with a film, whether a possible movie would be a theatrical release or something else that’s available solely through Netflix, how much he’s paid attention to the positive and negative reviews of the new episodes, that he sees this story as a continuing saga, that things would have been different if he could have had this entire cast together for every episode, how he feels about the people who are re-editing the episodes to put the scenes back together, and his advice to show creators who are looking to extend the life of their series. Check out what he had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers. READ MORE...
