So things were looking a little rough for the Bluth family as the first-half of Netflix‘s Arrested Development season 5 was wrapping up. Of course, what we call “rough” is what the Bluths call “Tuesday.” Political scandal… deception… double-crosses… and yes, even murder. A little something for everyone, I guess you could say. While fans […]
Fox just announced 7 different television series box sets are coming next month (February 2019), and we are super excited about them. The top on the list (for >this< reporter anyway) is FX’s incredible drama series, The Americans. It’ll be the complete series, all six seasons of Cold War spy intrigue and some of the best […]
Welcome to Bleeding Cool’s weekly review of the first season of Showtime‘s Kidding, beginning at the very beginning (a very nice place to start) with premiere episode ‘Green Means Go.’ The dramedy marks Jim Carrey‘s (The Truman Show) return to television in a series regular role, teaming with his Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind helmer and […]
Looks like the joke’s on us, courtesy of Showtime. The cable giant is giving everyone the opportunity to watch the first episode of Jim Carrey (The Truman Show) and his Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind helmer Michel Gondry‘s new comedy-drama series Kidding for free. Even better than that? You don’t have to wait until the […]
Just as we’re getting done clearing out all of the feels from the upcoming series’ first official trailer, Showtime continues tap-dancing on our heart strings with the second official trailer for Jim Carrey (The Truman Show) and his Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind helmer Michel Gondry‘s 10-episode half-hour comedy/drama series Kidding. Aside from confirming […]
A magician is assassinated in the dead of night. This magician was a part of the council, and this leads to the disparate Moonstone family being called together for the funeral and to decide how best to react to the threat. Another magician called Miss Albany has been stirring trouble in the council, and she […]
One of the best interview series around this last year has to be Variety’s Actors on Actors series presented by Shutterstock. I mean, seriously — Kate Winslet interviewing Gary Oldman, Michael B. Jordan and Issa Ray chatting, and Allison Brie talking with Jessica Biel, just to name a few. The most recent installment has Saturday Night Live alum Bill Hader chewing the fat with Arrested Development‘s Jason Bateman about […]
Netflix is just as excited as you are that Arrested Development is coming back for a 5th season, and they want to make sure you don’t binge it all in one sitting. Okay that’s not entirely true, but it’s one way of explaining why the decision to split the 16-episode season up into two separate chunks […]
With Netflix‘s Arrested Development “scorched-earthing” its way back into our lives with a fifth season later this month, The Bluths are using the occasion to make their pitch for Family of the Year. Considering that the “award” is sponsored by The Austero-Bluth Company, it’s pretty safe to say that they have it on lock. But […]
As dangerous as The Bluths can be on their own, fans of Netflix‘s Arrested Development are about to get a brutally hysterical reminder that the family that dysfunctions together, functions together. Creator Mitch Hurwitz‘s twisted take on family comedies returns to the streaming service for a fifth season on May 29th. From the looks of […]
Gimlet Media has announced its Spring 2018 programming slate of original podcast series, which includes a scripted science fiction series, a nonfiction science fact series and their first sports podcast. The new series include: Sandra, a virtual assistant-themed series starring Kristen Wiig (Saturday Night Live, Bridesmaids) and Alia Shawkat (Search Party, Arrested Development); simulated Mars […]
Most would probably agree the fourth season of Arrested Development was shaky, but it was clearly hurt by the show trying to work around the star’s schedules. It did have enough good moments, suggesting there might be reason to come back though. And it looks like it is finally happening. Speaking to The Wrap, executive […]
There’s still some life left in Arrested Development. While promoting his latest film, In the Heart of the Sea, director Ron Howard — an executive producer on the series as well as its narrator — told Good Morning America that creator Mitch Hurwitz is working with writers on the new season, according to Deadline. Though […]
By "movie" we don't necessarily mean something theatrical. Indeed, I'll be very surprised if we're not just talking about a 90-minute something on Netflix.
Creator Mitch Hurwitz has just confirmed at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal that Arrested Development will definitely be back. Could it be returning as a movie?
Where will this leave the movie? We've had it pitched to us that this recent Netflix series was "act one" and a film would wrap up acts two and three.
There's been some hypemongering talk of a possible fifth series or feature-length special, also funded by Netflix. I'd have paid it more heed if it didn't seem perfectly timed to get headlines for the show just before the relaunch.
This is a sizzle reel for Tobias Fünke's new enterprise, a little filmmaking idea that he's pitched to Ron Howard specifically. It's like having a mango in your mouth.
This thing is chock full of gags but doesn't even come close to giving away big plot details.
What the stars, and I suppose post-TV stars, of Arrested Development look like these days. Very much like the way they used to look, in fact.
