Arrested Development is Coming Back - Netflix is Bidding for Exclusivity  Print E-mail
Home Theater News What Is On In HD News

Normally this sort of story starts with "If you're a fan of X then you'll be excited about Y," but we're just going to go ahead and assume that everyone is a fan of 'Arrested Development.'  The show, which went unappreciated on television, gained a huge and rabid following in recent years and is hailed as one of the funniest and most original on TV.  'Arrested Development' is coming back, not for a movie as originally hinted at, but as a TV show.  The planned run is 10 episodes and bids are currently being accepted for the series.  One of the biggest contenders is Showtime, but it's Netflix that really makes things interesting.


Netflix has been working hard to establish a stronger presence on the market and they've been snatching up content left and right.  'House of Cards,' a new series that's Netflix exclusive, was pulled out of the hands of pay TV channels, and Netflix is looking to do the same with 'Arrested Development.' If Netflix can pull off an exclusivity deal on the show, it will mark the first major studio show that started traditionally and made the switch to digital distribution.  That'd be big for Netflix, but it would be huge for the future of streaming content - especially if successful.
