'Arrested Development' Cast to Reunite at NAB
The Bleuths are back.
The National Association of Broadcasters will stage an Arrested Development cast reunion this month during a session with Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos.
Cast members Will Arnett, Jeffrey Tambor, David Cross, Jessica Walter and Alia Shawkat will join series creator Mitch Hurwitz on the panel, which will discuss the streaming service's push into original content.
Netflix announced in November that it is resurrecting the critically beloved but ratings underperformer for new original episodes five years after Fox axed the comedy, which co-stars Jason Bateman, Michael Cera and Portia de Rossi.
The cast and creators of fellow Netflix original scripted efforts Hemlock Grove (Eli Roth, Brian McGreevy, Lee Shipman, Framke Janssen and Landon Liboiron) and Orange is the New Black (Jenji Kohan and Liz Friedman) will join the Arrested gang and Sarandos on the April 17 panel in Las Vegas.
The NAB show runs April 14-19 in Las Vegas. For more information, go to nab.org.
