When I first spotted the headline about an Arrested Development reunion I thought it was going to be about the urban legend-ish AD movie that’s on the way. No such luck, it seems.
But it turns out that series creator/executive producer Mitch Hurwitz, star Will Arnett and co-executive producer Jim Vallely have teamed for a new single-camera Fox comedy with a bit of a green twist.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, “the project, which has received a script commitment, is being written by Hurwitz, Arnett and Vallely. It stars Arnett as a rich Beverly Hills jackass who falls in love with a charitable tree-hugging woman who can’t stand his lifestyle or values.”
Considering how hard it was for me to find an unfunny press photo of Arnett (and the one up there is pretty funny), I’ve got high hopes for the unnamed new vehicle. Can’t wait to see the Development crew up to their old tricks…sorry, illusions.
