Star World adds 'Arrested Development' to its kitty

MUMBAI: English general entertainment channel Star World is aggressively going about its strategy of acquiring new shows for this year.

The latest it has acquired is the comedy Arrested Development and is from the Fox stable. The show kicks off on 14 July and will air every Thursday at 9:30 pm.

The protagonist Michael Bluth (Jason Bateman) is a widower with a 13-year-old son, named George-Michael (Michael Cera).

Bluth is forced to keep his large and dysfunctional family together after his father played by Jeffery Tambor is arrested for shifty accounting practices at the family-owned conglomerate and the Bluth family assets are frozen, making each member of the eccentric family panicking.

Meanwhile Michael's snobbish mother, Lucille (Jessica Walter), finds herself living alone in a penthouse without the financial means to maintain it.

While Michael's two brothers, Gob (Will Arnett) and Buster (Tony Hale), and his sister Lindsay (Portia DeRossi) with her husband Tobias (David Cross) and her daughter Maeby (Alia Shawkat) also find themselves having to recreate their lifestyles to fit their new financial status.

As had been reported earlier by Star and Buena Vista International Television - Asia Pacific (BVITV-AP) signed a multi-year agreement that will bring to the broadcaster most of BVITV's new network series programmes. These include Desperate Housewives and Lost.
