'Arrested Development' trio in Fox reunion
Will Arnett stars in project from Mitch Hurwitz, Jim VallelyIt's an "Arrested Development" reunion at Fox.
The Emmy-winning series' creator/executive producer Mitch Hurwitz, co-star Will Arnett and co-executive producer Jim Vallely have teamed for another single-camera Fox comedy.
The project, which has received a script commitment, is being written by Hurwitz, Arnett and Vallely. It stars Arnett as a rich Beverly Hills jackass who falls in love with a charitable tree-hugging woman who can't stand his lifestyle or values.
The comedy, produced by Sony TV and studio-based Tantamount, is the first project to come out of the development pact that Arnett inked with Fox in October.
Hurwitz is executive producing with his producing partners at Tantamount, Eric Tannenbaum and Kim Tannenbaum; Vallely; and Peter Principato and Paul Young. Arnett also serves as a producer.
Arnett recently lent his voice to "Sit Down, Shut Up," Hurwitz's animated comedy for Fox and Sony TV on which Vallely served as a co-exec producer.
Hurwitz and Vallely won two 2005 Emmys for penning the "Righteous Brothers" episode of "Development." This season, the two wrote the CBS/Sony pilot "Happiness Isn't Everything," which starred Jason Biggs.
Arnett earned Emmy noms for his role as part-time magician Gob Bluth on "Development" and for his recent recurring role on NBC's "30 Rock." The actor, who co-stars in "G-Force," will next be seen in "When in Rome" and "Jonah Hex."
Hurwitz and Arnett are repped by WME. Arnett is managed by Principato Young. Vallely is with CAA and Brillstein Entertainment.
