Big Comedy News

Yesterday, the details of the Arrested Development reunion were finally announced. The big surprise is that not only will there be a movie, but there will also be a 10-episode season. An even bigger surprise? The TV show will air on Netflix. Production has begun, and the season is expected to air in 2013. The movie is also expected to be released in 2013. The entire cast and the original writers have signed on, so I would expect great things from this show.

CBS has also greenlit a comedy by Louis C.K. and Spike Feresten. I’m a little torn on this one, because I love Louis C.K., but I really don’t like CBS comedies. To me, it would seem like these two worlds do not overlap at all. I’ll be curious to see whose sensibilities win out.
