Default Arrested Development (Series)

UPDATE:

OHHYEAAAA.

Source: Arrested Development (TV series) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Quote:
Arrested Development is an American television sitcom created by Mitchell Hurwitz for the Fox Broadcasting Company. The show's storyline centers on the Bluth family, a formerly wealthy, habitually dysfunctional family and is presented in a continuous, mockumentary format, incorporating hand-held camera work, narration, archival photos, and historical footage. Ron Howard is an executive producer and the uncredited narrator. Although set in Newport Beach and Balboa Island, California, Arrested Development was primarily filmed around Culver City and Marina del Rey. Three seasons of the show were produced and aired between 2003 and 2006.

Since debuting on November 2, 2003, the series earned six Emmy awards, one Golden Globe, critical acclaim and attracted a cult following, including several fan-based websites,[1] and in 2007 was listed as one of Time magazine's "100 Best TV Shows of All-TIME."[2]

Despite the approval from critics, Arrested Development never climbed in the ratings. Fox aired the final four episodes of the third season in a block as a two-hour series finale on February 10, 2006, opposite the opening ceremonies of the 2006 Winter Olympics. Despite its cancellation, the series has developed a devoted fanbase and cult following. A script is currently under development for a movie adaptation of Arrested Development, which is expected to be released in 2011. The main cast of the TV series will reprise their roles.[3]

...

The show focuses on the tension that developed among the members of the Bluth family, primarily from their diminished spending power. Each show pulls from a serpentine mix of sibling rivalries, unresolved oedipal conflicts, sexual incompatibilities, personal identity crises, adolescent trauma, aging, pride, miscommunication, lying, guilt, subterfuge, determination, immigration, manipulation, mutilation, social status anxiety, incest taboo, alcoholism, narcissism and a wide variety of other themes.

This has been my most recent obsession. I don't know if it's the Michael Cera or Jason Bateman in me that's got me hooked, but I think this is one of TVs best sitcoms, ever. The show is funny, witty, and is full of laughs. I've seen all three seasons about 4 times now, and I'm continuing on watching it all over again (I have these AD binges where I just watch the entire series for a whole day or three).

I've heard about an Arrested Development movie coming out, probably in 2011, though I haven't heard of any progress or even a script written out.

Feature film

Rumors of a possible full-length Arrested Development film circulated after the possibility was referenced in the show's final episode.[34] Arrested Development: The Movie is currently awaiting production, with the script to be written by Hurwitz;[35][36][37][38] Ron Howard is slated to direct.[38][39] Reportedly, all original members of the main cast are expected to reprise their roles.[40]

On February 1, 2008, Jason Bateman confirmed that series creator Mitchell Hurwitz and executive producer/narrator Ron Howard had "put the wheels in motion toward a major motion picture."[41] In April of that year, Jeffrey Tambor and Bateman confirmed their interest and it was reported that "everyone seems to be very much on board and excited" about the film's prospects.[35] In July 2009, Bateman said "We're gonna make the movie. Mitch Hurwitz is just starting to write it. It'll be out in a year and a half."[42]

However, Alia Shawkat told the Los Angeles Times in April 2009 that, while prepared to reprise her role as Maeby, she was "waiting along with everyone else" for the film to begin production, stating: "I'll believe it when I get the call sheet for the first day."[43] Similarly, in an interview published in September 2009 by The A.V. Club, David Cross, who played Tobias on the show, stated that he hadn't had news of progress of the film in "months, really." The interviewer asked him if a script was ready, and Cross stated, "Not that I know of. I know a script was due. But those guys are notorious for being late. So I dunno, I haven’t heard anything. Everybody wants to do it."[44]

In January 2010, Will Arnett confirmed that, although no script had yet been completed, filming would begin in 2010; however, he confirmed no release date.[45] In April 2010, David Cross expressed doubt that the movie would happen since so much time had passed since the series ended.[46] As a response, on April 16, 2010, Jason Bateman stated in an interview that creator Mitchell Hurwitz was working on a new TV pilot with Will Arnett but would be continuing to work on the movie script.[47]
Definitely hoping the movie does come out--



... so, anyone else a fan of this show?
