If you like Netflix you are among friends here. We have long subscribed, but are always wishing that the service had more content to watch. It would be great if some of that content was original and worth watching too. Netflix has announced a new landmark deal that is the first of its kind.
Netflix has signed a deal with Twentieth Century Fox/Fox TV that will see the streaming service get exclusive new episodes of the show Arrested Development. The new episodes will start airing in 2013. Arrested Development was cancelled five years ago, but was one of the most popular and critically acclaimed series on TV. The show is on the 100 best TV shows of all time list according to Time Magazine.
Imagine Entertainment co-founders Ron Howard and Brian Grazer said, "Of all the projects we've been involved with over the years, we probably get more questions about Mitch Hurtwitz's brilliant 'Arrested Development' than any other-- everyone, ourselves included, seems to feel like the Bluths left the party a bit too soon. Bringing a series back from cancellation almost never happens, but then, 'Arrested' always was about as unconventional as they get, so it seems totally appropriate that this show that broke the mold is smashing it to pieces once again."
