Mitch Hurwitz, the master mind behind hit show Arrested Development, has signed a multi-year deal to create, develop, and produce original series with Netflix. Hold your horses though, we don't know if that means that there will be another series of Arrested, but hell, it looks promising, no?
The writer teamed up with the streaming service back in 2011 in order to revive the cult comedy with a new series released last May. It seemed to have been a very successful partnership too with Hurwitz telling Entertainment Weekly; "They worked with me as true creative partners, and it so happens that being creative is their business model. We were trying to take as much advantage of the opportunities we had — not replicate a recipe that had been made under different circumstances years earlier."
In a statement on Tuesday he said; “It is incredibly inspiring to get to produce for Netflix, a company that not only doesn’t resist change, but is leaps and bounds ahead of everyone in forging it. The fact that I’m also getting one month of their streaming right to my TV or Xbox free…well, it really takes the sting out of buying that Xbox.”
Hurwitz has worked on shows such as The John Larroquette Show and The Golden Girls in the past as well as co-creator of The Ellen Show, so no doubt whatever he turns his hand to this time round will be great. But you know, another series of A.D? It wouldn't go astray is all I'm sayin'.
