As films become more and more uninspired and insipid, it seems television’s ability to churn out groundbreaking media at an alarming rate is growing exponentially. This is technically film news as it’s essentially a lead-in to the highly anticipated Arrested Development movie. I’m mostly inclined to comment on this because Arrested Development was a pioneer of the television form, whose residual effect has influenced and financially benefited other successful shows like 30 Rock, The Office, and Community. Can’t control my excitement about this one:
“Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz announced today that the show will be coming back to television — five years after it was cancelled.
Hurwitz said the show will do a “limited” season which will show us what the characters have been up to since the show last aired … which will then lead right into the planned movie.“
