Netflix resurrects 'Arrested Development'

MUMBAI: New episodes of the comedy series ‘Arrested Development‘ will be coming exclusively to Netflix for its US members to watch instantly, beginning in 2013.

For the first time in their histories, Twentieth Century Fox Television and Imagine Television will produce original first-run entertainment content for the internet subscription service, bringing back the series to production on all new episodes five years after its cancellation.

The tale of the formerly wealthy, deeply eccentric Bluth Clan aired for three seasons, 2003-2006, on US broadcaster Fox and was honored with the Emmy award for Outstanding Comedy Series after its first season on the air.
Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos said, "Arrested Development is one of the finest American comedies in TV history and its return through Netflix is a perfect example of how we are working closely with studios and networks to provide consumers with entertainment they love.

"It‘s also a perfect example of how broad and successful our relationship has become with Fox as we work together with their film, television, international and digital divisions on several exciting initiatives".

Fox Filmed Entertainment president of new media and digital distribution Peter Levinsohn added, "Netflix‘s bold entrance into original programming presents an exciting new opportunity for our two companies. Bringing a classic show back to production on new episodes exclusively for Netflix customers is a game changer, and illustrates the incredible potential the new digital landscape affords great content providers like Twentieth Century Fox Television and Imagine."
