Arrested Development creator not finished with hapless Bluths
Hes not exactly sure what will happen next, which is oddly appropriate for such an unpredictable comedy.
Were trying to figure that out, he said in an interview at the Just For Laughs comedy festival where he addressed members of the entertainment industry.
The next thing that might happen, its not wholly up to me, but Id like to get the whole cast together, do some sort of movie to finish the story that weve told. We already have the way that would go into another season on Netflix.
The current season was originally conceived as a series of webisodes which eventually developed into 15 shows of around 30 minutes each. Hurwitz compared the way the story unfolds to the way a novel does one big story that will slowly come together.
Arrested Development follows the bumbling Bluths, whose levels of selfabsorption veers into the bizarre for ribtickling results.
It had a short, threeseason run on network television before being cancelled in 2006 and replaced by the largely nowforgotten Pamela Anderson comedy Stacked.
Arrested Development, however, had developed a rabid and vocal fan following even if it didnt immediately translate into ratings. Other people engaged with the show on DVD and demands for more episodes followed.
It is one of the few instances of a show being brought back from the dead because of fan demand, the other most notable examples being the crude cartoon The Family Guy, which was spurred by DVD sales, and the rebooting of the Star Trek franchise after the shows initial run faltered.
Hurwitz said the cast is open to continuing the Bluths story.
Everybodys game, he said. Its their show too. Everybody feels very proprietory about it and thats a fortune too, that I dont have to feel that Im asking for a favour. Its fun for all of us.
In the meantime, he said he believed it is likely that 20th Century Fox will release a DVD of the fourth season which was posted on Netflix.
Arrested Development, which has been known for breaking ground with its innovative ways of telling its stories, scored another innovation recently when it and the Netflix political drama House of Cards were nominated for Emmys in major categories.
It was the first time thats happened since web content was allowed into contention in 2008.
Star Jason Bateman, who plays the hapless Michael Bluth, was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series. Other nominations are for outstanding music composition for a series and outstanding singlecamera editing for a comedy series.
We were so happy that Jason got acknowledged for his great work and really that the Emmys considered Netflix at all, Hurwitz said, adding the production isnt in it for the awards.
Were doing it for the fans.
Hurwitz, who has The Ellen Show, Ellen DeGeneres sitcom, and The Golden Girls among his network TV credits, was effusive in his praise of Netflix for its support of the show.
They really made this a great experience because theyre risktakers and theyre trying to do business differently. Theyre trying to give the audience what they want directly.
He acknowledged that the Netflix system can absorb some risk and doesnt necessarily have to cater to the perfect demographic. Viewers can also watch what they want when they want to and even watch a whole season of a TV at once if thats what they desire.
It feels like youve got some free will in the matter, Hurwitz said.
The producer said he realized as he got further into the Arrested Development return that there was an increasing level of fan expectations. However, he said by that point he was too excited about putting the show together and twisting the story to worry about the reaction.
In many ways, I felt like I hope this even makes sense, much less pleases the fans so it was an interesting experience, he said.
Hurwitz said he knows the show has its critics but says at the end of the day you have to tune that out. People who liked the show liked what was done, he said.
The producer said the feeling that Arrested Development is somewhat of a popculture phenomenon escaped him initially because he was so immersed in getting the shows return approved and then making the episodes.
With a little distance, I can see it that way a little more, that this was something that happened because of a movement, he said. This is a privilege.
