The Arrested Development run of ten episodes that will air on Netflix is set to start filming tomorrow. We’ve been counting the days until the moment and it is finally upon us! Deadline reports that the entire original cast of Jason Bateman, Jeffrey Tambor, Portia de Rossi, David Cross, Jessica Walter, Will Arnett, Michael Cera, Alia Shawkat and Tony Hale will be returning along with Ron Howard in his capacity as a narrator. That’s one character per episode, which may factor into the idea that each episode will focus on one of the Bluths, likely with multiple characters in certain episodes. (Could we get an episode all about the narrator, maybe?)
Production is expected to continue into the fall. Creator Mitch Hurwitz is open to an additional season if the first run proves successful. Netflix has said they’ll release all ten episodes at the same time on an unspecified day in 2013.
Not entirely sure we needed to see Fozzie Bear get waxed but I'm still excited for this.
Will Ferrell visits 10 Major League Baseball spring training camps in one day and plays every position, as part of a new comedic sports documentary for HBO.
Also, the season 2 finale of 'Halt and Catch Fire' and the latest episode of FX's 'Tyrant.'
"Everyone looks like they're playing their own parents."

"If that's the thing that keeps you out of heaven, I don't wanna go."
"I would be cautious. The young turk may inspire the old Lithuanian to keep himself interesting."
"Vasiliy and Setrakian have a similar connection as [me] and David [Bradley]. I really look up to him, and really love and respect him. We’ve developed this bond that I think has really reverberated on screen."
The two have decided to pursue other creative endeavors, but will collaborate again in the future.
